Documented in ChartNumberFormat

#' Generates a d3 number format for use by charting functions.
#' 
#' See https://github.com/d3/d3-format for more information on d3.
#' @param number.format A list of five unnamed items in the following order:
#' 1) The type of number formatting. One of \code{"Automatic"}, \code{"Category"}, \code{"Number"},
#'  \code{"Percentage"}, \code{"Date/Time"}, \code{"Currency"}, \code{"Metric units suffix"}, 
#'  \code{"Scientific"} and \code{"Custom"}.
#' 2) A d3 date format. If specified, this will be used provided type is neither \code{"Automatic"}
#' nor \code{"Category"} nor a custom format is not specified.
#' 3) A custom d3 number format. If specifed this will be used in preference to all other inputs
#' apart from \code{"Automatic"} and \code{"Category"}.
#' 4) A boolean indicating whether to separate thousands with commas.
#' 5) An integer specifying the number of decimal places, or for \code{"Metric units suffix"}, the number
#' of significant digits.
#' @param as.percentages Whether the \code{"Automatic"} formatting should be as percentages.
#' @details Defaults to \code{"Automatic"} if no type is specified.
#' @export
