      Dim nfi As NumberFormatInfo = New CultureInfo("en-US", False).NumberFormat

      ' Displays a value with the default separator (".").
      Dim myInt As [Double] = 0.1234
      Console.WriteLine(myInt.ToString("P", nfi))

      ' Displays the same value with a blank as the separator.
      nfi.PercentDecimalSeparator = " "
