      Is this going to be sent to a line object? I had trouble building a message with a comma in it. I did this instead:

      There are many earlier posts on this type of question, check out: message using $1 $2 $3 etc. from earlier today. Luke posted a solution that would solve your type of issue here. When using 'pak' a 0 or a 0. allows you to specify whether the values are going to be float point or integer.
      Luke's patch he submitted solves your problem I think.
      Good luck.
