No, it isn't. But if (as long as) you are using scientific notation, (I

think) you get to use mathematical constants such as e (the little one -

Euler's) and such as.....

.... pi.

That is, the UTF-16 0x03C0 one, the little Greek letter. So, if you use

the right notation, you can just write the Greek letter and you don't need

all of those digits and you will have it exactly right, instead of just

very close.
