Fortunately, ARM doesn't support NaN or infinity as FP immediates; the allowed FP immediates of the form:
+/-(1 + m/16)*2^e
where m is an integer in [0,15] and e is an integer in [-3,4].
I agree with Dale that the hex format would be ideal if the assembler will swallow it. Leave conversions between binary and decimal out of it.
