Rescale scales lower bound wrong


Dear Group,

is there anything smart to be said concerning the following code?

In[1]:= Rescale[0.09090909090909091,{0.09090909090909091,1.},{0,100}]

Out[1]= -1.7763568394002505`*^-15

In[2]:= myRescale[y_,{minY_, maxY_},{minX_,maxX_}]:=N[(maxX-minX)/
(maxY-minY)*(y- minY)+minX];

In[3]:= myRescale[0.09090909090909091,{0.09090909090909091,1.},
{0,100}]

Out[3]= 0.

In my intention, the first result is wrong (apart from the actual
value, it is a negative number!), and the second one is correct. Is
the first result due to the internal number-representation?

Thanks

Istvan Zachar
