I realized my proposed changes also have some flaw and may need to be tweaked.

My question is should trailing zeros in “0.50000” be allowed? I didn’t see the original text prohibit this.
Yes, the original text is correct, but it excludes some exception cases, such as “0.500000000”, if my understanding is correct.

Hi Qin,

I also find the current RFC text quite understandable and correct.

The “and” is required to disallow “.0” and “0.” as valid canonical forms.  I.e. in the canonical form there MUST always be at least one digit (which could be 0) before the decimal point and then must be at least one digit (which could be 0) after the decimal point.  Otherwise, there must be no leading or trailing 0’s.  So, none of  “.0”, “0.”, “00.0”, “0.00” and “00.00” are in the canonical form, and should be represented as “0.0” instead; similarly none of “.1”, “1.”, “01.0”, “1.00” and “01.00” are in the canonical form and should be represented as “1.0” instead.

Thanks,
Rob

Understand, the problem lies at "and" that is used in " one digit before and after the decimal point ", that is to say it only focus on the case that has two digits, one is before decimal point, the other digit is after decimal such as "5.06", but doesn't cover the case where "one digit before or after the decimal point ", that’s why I think the case 0.500000 is not covered. We should prohibit trailing zeros in “0.5000000”.

The text starts with the general case and says "Leading and trailing zeros are prohibited", which seems to cover 0.50000000. The text then handles the special rule that there needs to be at least one digit before and after the decimal point. I think all is fine.
