I don't think the mere existence of a raised dot used as a decimal point

should really force us to regard the context as "math mode", to use TeX

lingo. Decimal fraction notation is everywhere. In any case, I'm

wondering whether half-M or half-x height is the prescriptive default

(fwiw) or whether there is free variation or underspecification.
