Comma as decimal delimiter using LaTeX in WordPress

AuthorPosts

When trying to get familiar with LaTeX in WordPress blogs I have recognised a difference in layout if I use comma as a decimal delimiter, which is international standard according to ISO, compared to if I use a period. Using a comma, the space beween the delimiter and the first decimal gets a bit to large. Is there a way to tell the system that I want the comma to be taken as a decimal delimiter?
I have no previous experience with LaTeX in stand alone systems and am trying to approach it this way. If this is a localisation issue, Sweden and Swedish is my country and language. Well, it is my country and language anyway.

You didn’t post the URL for the blog in question, starting with http:?/ Are you referring to a wordpress.com blog? If so, have you checked here? http://en.support.wordpress.com/code/postingsourcecode/
The blog is my testblog at http://perstest.wordpress.com
Thanks for posting the blog URL. I don’t work with source code so I can’t help you. Hopefully another volunteer can help but if not you will have to contact Staff.

I have spent some time browsing the help pages including http://en.support.wordpress.com/latex/ and http://en.support.wordpress.com/code/postingsourcecode/ but I haven’t found any answer so far.
It’s refreshing to hear that you searched. :) I’m sorry you came up empty. :( Here’s the link to contact Staff. http://en.support.wordpress.com/contact/
I finally found a solution which I have tested in my wordpress blog above.
$\pi = 3{,}1415\ldots$
I found it by following the link to the German FAQ at:
http://www.latexproject.org/help.html
Finally I ended up at this page:

where also an alternative solution is suggested.
