If the decimal separator is a dot, then what would the decimal point be?

Long time no see :)

what i mean is this, 1 345 234.23

So is it possible to achieve this? Or not logical at all?
Oh OK - just a space for a thousands separator . I wouldn't either look for a Locale that has such a thing (i doubt it exists) or even create one. Just formatting is all you need
DecimalFormatSymbols symbols = DecimalFormatSymbols.getInstance();
symbols.setGroupingSeperator(' ');
DecimalFormat df = new DecimalFormat("###,##.##", symbols);
String output = df.format(1345234.23,)
