    missing digits in decimal expansion

    Are there any interesting irrational numbers whose decimal expansions have no 9s in them. Certainly one can construct such a number (take the square root of two in base 9. The onlydidgits will be 0-8. Then declare it to be in base 10. The number will still be irrational, and will only have...
