That way, you can show the user whatever style convention you want, while also satisfying the dot requirement for structured data. For example:


Google said that if you are currently using comma separators for decimal ratings in your markup, you'll still be eligible for review snippets. However, Google now recommends that you update your markup for a more accurate interpretation.
