As long as its a float, it'll be converted to the simplest form. So 0
is the simplest form of 00. The same would happen with 0.0000. So if
you need 00 in a symbol, you'll need generate it by some other method
first, like sending the list [0 0( to [list2symbol].
If you are using this for MAC addresses or other similar numbers, they
usually consider 0 and 00 the same thing.
