FUNCTION:  Float.round

The Float.round function rounds a given floating-point number to the nearest integer value and returns that value.
If the decimal portion of a positive floating-point number lies between .00000000 and .49999999, the number is rounded down (toward zero, becoming less positive). Otherwise, a positive floating-point number will be rounded up (away from zero, becoming more positive).
If the decimal portion of a negative floating-point number lies between .00000000 and .49999999, the number is rounded up (toward zero, becoming less negative). Otherwise, a negative floating-point number will be rounded down (away from zero, becoming more negative).
If the number is already an integer, then that same integer value will be returned.
If the browser does not support floating-point arithmetic operations, then the browser will not recognize the Float Library, nor any of the member functions. In this case, the Float.round function returns invalid.
The mandatory value parameter can be any positive or negative single-precision floating-point number or any positive or negative integer number (including zero). The floating-point number must reside on or between the largest number and the smallest nonzero number supported by the browser. These boundary values can be determined using the Float.maxFloat and Float.minFloat functions.
