Hi, Manuel

In the preamble of your document write:  \spanishdecimal{.}

By mutual agreement  almost all the countries where the spanish language 
is official, have adopted the use of the comma as the decimal separator. 
All countries except Mexico, where a dot is the decimal separator.  I 
really do not understand this fact :-(  ...

Best regards...
