We use dots to indicate multiplication in the US as well, but here we place the dots midway (vertically speaking).

2.3=6 doesn't look right to me, but 23=6 does.  You could also try using 23=6.  In these examples I use ascii(249) and ascii(250) respectively to get the dots placed in the middle.

a simple way to use these ascii characters is to hold down the "Alt" key while typing in the 3 digit ascii code, then release the "Alt" key.  (think of the "Alt" key like a "Shift" key).  Not all standard ascii characters are available using this method, but there's enough to get by.  Also, you must have "Num Lock" enabled on your keyboard before doing this.
