How do you write decimals in Europe?

In many European countries, a comma is used to separate decimals, instead of the point that is common in the United States. The point is then used to separate thousands and millions, etc. Thus, in the United States you might write 12,345.67; in Germany, this would be written as 12.345,67. The situation is similar in Latin America - comma for decimals, point as a thousands separator. But due to the influence of the United States, this is not always strictly and universally followed.
