* :abs.Function to format a 2-decimal position number in thousands
*      and to create a written-amount text.
*      The written-amount text composition was primarily designed having
*      the Brasilian-Portuguese format in mind and then I've adapted (at
*      least tried) to English formatting.
*      I think it can also be adapted to other languages.
