The original text about rounding was incorrect, and the new
"consolidated version" is also incorrect.
The [assign] tag doesn't round values at all; It's left up to the
display tags ([subtotal] and [shipping] etc.) to handle things like
rounding and currency formatting.
Next... "You cannot directly assign a "total cost" amount — it will
always be the sum of all assignment keys." It will not always be so
if there is no assignment then a calculated value will be used. The
above statement makes it sound as if it is mandatory that you assign a
value to all "assignment keys" or risk not obtaining a complete total cost.
Next... "This tag does not appear to be affected by, or affect, the rest
of Interchange." I consider that statement to be false, given that this
tag allows the value of other tags to be effectively hard-coded for the
duration of a session.
Well, that's almost the whole page, so I'll leave it there for now.
