Dowload Coverage form does not accept exponential notation

Regarding the 'Coverage' tab of the Layers/Coverage/Area_of_Interest box:
The coverge download form (window) displays small resolution vaules in exponential notation (eg. 0.000276 is shown as 2.76E-4). This is in spite of the corresponding DescribeCoverage xml response listing the value in float notation (as 0.0002760). The javascript float validation procedure then rejects the value of
2.76E-4 as not being a valid float. Granted, there is the workaround of asking the user to manually re-enter the float value of 0.000276, but how many users will think to do so?

Milan,

Indeed, it would be better to keep the original notation. We will fix this in the next release.

Regards,
