Default tube power supply voltage

What does it mean when the specs for a tube power supply says:

high output voltage 320V-30mA

Low output voltage 18V-0A6

It's probably a strange way of saying 18 Volts at 0.6 Amperes.

Common in Europe to replace a decimal point with the S.I. unit your working in.
I've mostly seen it in resistance though rather than current.

I suppose it saves a character

I'm interested in the 320V-30mA part.

Does it mean use with a 320V 30mA CCS?

No, it means that the maximum current the supply can put out on the HV rail is 30mA. Wimpy.
