The original text about rounding was incorrect, and the new consolodated
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
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.
