[OS X TeX] decimal numbers in Applescript

Could someone with an American number format in the OS, please check, 
if the result of the Applescript command

set x to "0,5" as number

gives x=0.5

On my system it does, even after  switching  to an American format, 
though I am suspicious that I would first have to restart Applescript, 
before the change will become effective, but which I would like to 

Applescript refuses to make the string "0.5" into a number.
