Adding (English) number suffixes: '2nd', etc.

Researching issues raised (in another thread) about removing number suffixes, e.g. "3rd" -> "3", I tripped across a neat solution** to adding such suffixes.

Add a List and Number attribute and try this code, as a stamp or $Rule or in some such context;

$MyList = "th;st;nd;rd;th;th;th;th;th;th";
if (mod($MyNum,100) >= 11 & mod($MyNum,100) <= 13) {
  $MyString = $MyNum + "th";
} else {
  $MyString = $MyNum + $MyList.at(mod($MyNum,10));
}


Of course for languages other than English not only the suffixes will differ but the logic will likely change too.

** kudos: this stackoverflow thread.
