RE: How can I transform the number of 123.456 into "123.456"?

Liwen,

ToString[123.456]
% // FullForm
123.456
"123.456"

Mathematica does not normally display strings with the quote marks showing.
(You can change this behavior in the Option Inspector.)

Strangely, ToString is not discussed in Section 2.7, Strings and Characters,
but in Section 2.8.3.
