American numbers make no sense. 101 is one hundred and one, because you have one hundred and then you've added another one. 101.1 is one hundred and one point one, because you have one hundred, then the added one, then a decimal point, then one. A decimal point ats as a decimal point, so you say 'point'. 'and' means 'additionally', like 'addition', 'adding' etc, so you say 'and' when you've 'added' another number.
I would personally go with the British English, because it was created first and makes a whole lot more sense. After all, Americans are the ones who mutated words like 'generalise' to 'generalize', 'aluminium' to 'aluminum', 'colour' to 'color' and 'metre' to 'meter' (that last one I don't understand in the slightest, given it is part of the metric unit of measurement, and so shouldn't be changed).
