 Replying to [comment:3 ahocevar]:
 > I thought we had agreed that we should trust the user to provide floats,

 The problem isn't only about providing floats vs strings, it is about the
 number of significant figures. See the comments above
 {{{OpenLayers.Util.DEFAULT_PRECISION}}} in {{{Util.js}}}, and the
 {{{Bounds.html}}} tests.

 > Other than that, I am not opposed to the patch, but I see no value in
 shortening the variable names used. I know we (including myself) have been
 using single char variable names recently, but it is still against our
 coding standards.

 Ok, I will revert the changes for the variable names.
