The dot is removed, so "10.1" is indexed as "10" and "1" (and only if you 
set the minimum length to 1). You will need to add a regular expression to 
indexer.pl's normalize() function that turns yx.z into yxDOTz, before the 
special characters (e.g. the dot) are removed. Then it needs to be changed 
back to yx.z.
