    Yeah. But we are talking here about localization, so why should we avoid
    to use a translated string of "not a number"?

    I also can't see the reqirement to use a single character. Especialy not
    because all other values are not represented by a single character too.
    Nobody dare to require "100" or "0.5" to be represented by a single
    character, although some languages can.

    (by the way: are there any formatting characters which leads to the use
    of special value characters like ? - especialy usefull with rounding to
    0.5 or 0.25 or even 0.125? Or [more unlikely] formatting for bases other
    than 10? Or [most unlikely] using special characters like ?, ?, ? or ?
    (my favorite ;-)? Of course only if the used language provides these...)
