I noticed that only Integers are considered html_safe; shouldn't floats be considered html_safe as well?

All numeric classes actually :)

Are we sure all numerics should be safe? Not being a mathematician, this may be an ignorant assertion, but I could see some subclasses of Numeric (probably custom subclasses) having unsafe characters such as the exponential symbol, the power-of-10 symbol, or the Unicode times symbol.

Numeric has 4 native child classes : Bignum, Float, Fixnum, Integer.
All of these should be html_safe. For any other specific one, the method can be overriden.
