For what it is worth, the standard for Tone is shortened to only 4 bytes "T103". Thre is no need to waste two extra bytes for tenths of a Hz, since the tones are all standardized. We need people to follow this standard so that their objects can be parsed properly. The proper way to display a tone of say 88 HZ is T088...
