    Question DecimalFormat fromat method return junk chacter , formate with this value "NaN"

    Hello all
    I get the following issue when i use the DecimalFormat java class for format the value in java program,

    Below is my the java code
    String pattern = "0";
    String value[] = new String[1];
    value[0] = "NaN";
    DecimalFormat myFormatter = new DecimalFormat(pattern);
    value[0] = myFormatter.format(Double.parseDouble(value[0]));
    Here when my java consol can not print the value[0] , When i had debug it and check its value is display as small square in debug console
    while in html page its value display is like this character �.

    So how can i format the "NaN" Value? actually i think it is meaningless to format the "NaN" value , but i want to know
    why the below code is return junk character value.
    value[0] = myFormatter.format(Double.parseDouble(value[0]));

    Pls provide me the proper solution of my above case.

    Thanks in advance

    Where does the one-element String array figure in your problem? Why didn't you use a simple String variable?

    Or did you think it might be fun to obscure the real issue with something irrelevant?

    That's just the way how it formats a NaN value; it formats infinity as ∞ b.t.w.
