Comma has two meanings in IN() clause if you are using it in German keyboard
layouts: list and decimal separator.

Two avoid misunderstandings I teach my users to use spaces around comma for
numeric list entries. Without spaces comma is interpreted as decimal
seperator.

This rule is easy to understand for users and leads to correct results, too.
