By the way, Danish has nearly the 
same system with tens. They say 50 
and then 3 times 20, and 70 is 4 
and a half times 20, and 80 is 4 
times 20. As for the Mediterranean 
countries I don't know, but the 
rest of Europe do read points and 
commas the French way.

Swedes read numbers much like the 
French, in pairs, but Danish 
friends have told me they read e.g. 
phone numbers in groups of three!

But in the few instances that I 
have had to take down numbers in 
Esperanto or Interlingua, this has 
been no problem for me.
