+Summary: Mono Convert.ToSingle(double) throws exception, .NET doesn't
+Convert.ToSingle(double) throws an exception for values that are greater 
+than Float.MaxValue or smaller than Float.MinValue.
+Although this makes sense, Microsoft's .NET Framework doesn't throw the 
+exception here, but does just a (float)value. MSDN documentation mentions 
+no exception.
