[REBOL] Re: Strange multiply phenomenon

This is a pretty amazing mailing list. I don't use it a lot, but I have a few times,
and every time I have gotten a correct answer faster than some support sites we use here
that we pay for.
And, except for the incident of a few years ago that I suspect everyone remembers, it
is an amazingly polite one.
Thank you all.

I have been trying to convert a decimal number, representing dollars and cents, into
a fixed-length string for use in building a fixed-format data file, for sending to a
bank. I have been off by a penny on my current attempt and I have narrowed it down to
the following REBOL statement that I can run at the interpreter prompt, giving the following
>> print to-integer multiply 76.71 100
Can anyone explain this?
