    Hi Rob, there are many ways to handle rounding but I prefer "Round away from 0" in the event of a tie.

    This would round 200.005 to 200.01 but  round -200.005 to -200.01

    This differs from "Round up" in that negative numbers are treated differently.

    "Round up" would round -200.005 to £200.00.

    Options are:

    Round up

    Round down

    Round towards 0

    Round away from 0

    Round to even

    Round to odd

    Stochastic rounding - Random

    Alternate rounding - Round the first tie up, the next down and so on.

    It would seem to me that round away from zero should be the universal standard throughout all features everywhere.  Does anyone disagree?

    @Adam, yes, someone does disagree which is the reason for this poll :)
