      Description

      Currently, data formatting is done on the server-side and passed to the client as string.  This okay for display but, it cannot be used in calculation since some precision may have been lost.  Switch to client-side formatting so that the full data's precision is preserved on the client.

      This is typically a problem for FITS or VOTAbles that doens't express the precision in their attributes and when the data gets to the clinet for table and chart , some problem appeared there bevause of the default formatting implied on the server.

      See discussion in IRSA-2270, but when precision is not given:

      • double in fits file will get "%.9g"
      • floating-numbers in votable will go through a 'guess' logic with a minimum of 8 decimal places.
