This little tool helps you try out d3.format specifiers on different numbers.<br>
Documentation for format specifiers is <a href="https://github.com/mbostock/d3/wiki/Formatting">here</a>.
<br><br>
Enter a number:<br>
<input id="userNum" type="string"><br><br>
Add your own format specifier (ex: .4n):<br>
<input id="formatSpecifier" type="string"><br>
<table style="padding-top: 20px;"><thead>
<tr>
<th class="formattext">format specifier</th>
<th class="formatresult">resulting formatted number</th>
</tr>
</thead>
<tbody>
</tbody>
