British typographic instructions for the raised decimal point
say things like

"Type decimal points midline (ie, 234, not 23.4). To create a
midline decimal on a PC: hold down ALT key and type 0183
on the number pad, or on a Mac: ALT shift 9."

In other words, they tell people to use U+00B7 MIDDLE DOT.
