Decimal Justify fields

Add an option in InfoAssist to allow numeric fields to be aligned on the decimal.

Use Case:

Currently, if the brackets for negative option is used, columns look misaligned on a right justify. The negative amounts are shifted to the left half a character (the width of the closing parenthesis).

    Decimal justify fields partially work in 2.2.1 Group PTF 9 and 2.3, depending on the output format. PDF and Excel output both seem aligned. When viewing HTML report in IA, it is aligned. When running from the portal, is is not. We have a case opened for the last scenario but all the other options seem to work as requested.

    Thank you for the input. We will add it to our list. We are also investigating if there is a style sheet option already for this.
