Formatting numerical values greater than 12 digits for the Web

This tip describes how to format numerical values greater than 12 digits for the Web.

I saw someone posted a tip of "Formatting numerical values for Web", and it only works for 12 digits. I have a better way to format a numeric value into a currency.

REM "---- 2 decimal places";
fv := valueTobeFormated;

sample input 99999
sample output $99,999

REM "---- no decimal places";
fv := valueTobeFormated;

sample input 99999.88
sample output $99,999.88
