Like Roger, I'm totally confused as to what you're really trying to say here...but
Are you saying you're trying to represent the integer and fractional portion of a value as the integer value of each in two separate bit fields so that the internal storage could be
bit positions 115 11111100 0000000 54321098 7654321
10011100.1100110
where the decimal is an implied one????
If not, try again in complete detail to explain what it is you are trying to do...
