in thread Why am I losing accuracy?
Yes, it's asking for reduced precision, but I think that bliako is surprised as I am by the sign of the precision argument. The various number formatting tools I've used have given me the expectation that a positive number indicates the number of digits I want to retain to the right of the decimal place, rather than to the left.
When your only tool is a hammer, all problems look like your thumb.
