The diagram on the JSON.org website suggests that the leading zero is okay whereas the RFC4627 specification states that "Leading zeros are not allowed." for numbers. The org.json won't accept the leading zero and the JSON_Parser library won't accept a leading decimal point.

      0.625 a correct JSON number, and is accepted by org.json.JSONObject and by json2.js.
