[Note: When a format specifier includes symbols that vary by culture, such as the currency symbol included by the "C" and "c" formats, a formatting object supplies the actual charac-M ters used in a string representation of a numeric value. For example, a formatting object
N may supply "$" for the currency symbol. The formatting object for system-supplied numeric types is a System.Globalization.NumberFormatInfo instance. For System.DateTime instances, a System.Globalization.DateTimeFormatInfo is P used. System.IFormatProvider contains the System.IFormatProvider.GetFormat q method. The consumer of an object should call this method to obtain a formatting object.]
