Description
This template is a shortcut for using parser function "formatnum" together with Template:Decimals.
Instead of typing {{formatnum:{{decimals| and your data, accomplish the same thing with fewer keystrokes by typing {{formdec| and your data.
Syntax
{{Formdec|<number or expression>|<(optional) decimals (limited to 12) (0 if omitted)>}}
The second parameter, "decimals", is optional. If decimals is omitted, the template use a default value of 0.
Optional super-shortcut:
Editors may save time (and code space) by using {{Fd}} in place of {{Formdec}}.
