No, it is not. I just wanted to be sure you were talking about input.
I'll prefer the string approach since I can see by myself why it will
I need to think more about the case of numbers coming out from Mathematica
computations. So I consider my initial problem --that of inputs--
solved, and I warmly thank everybody.

That's one way to put it. I'd rather say that I like elegant
solutions. Anyway, transforming a lot of such numbers is error prone
and way too time consuming, to the extent that it simply cannot be
