FloatConverter page updated

The FloatConverter page has been updated and moved to the new layout. While at it I've also updated the JavaScript and server-side software. If everything works as intended, some minor feature updates should come next. Apparently there is still quite some confusion about the difference between the decimal value (i.e. "0.1"), the actual floating point number (i.e. the respective IEEE-754 bit pattern) and the precise decimal value of that floating-point number (which is not equal to "0.1"). So maybe I can point that out in a better way.
