Hi David, all,

no need to CC me personally - this leads to offlist communication when I reply to the
PM instead of the mail sent to the list.

Hi, :-)

By the way, could you Design guys please maybe fix the banner? A sum
of money expressed in English with the euro sign should be formatted
exactly like this: €50,000

The formatting you mention (50.000 €) has been introduced by Florian, while
I prefer EUR 50 000 for international sites.

(Notice the comma separator for the thousands, and the prefixed euro
symbol. The point/dot/period is a *decimal separator*.)

As the comma separator shows the same problems in other parts of the world
as the point in your understanding, we should avoid both on the international
site. 50 000 is easy to recognize by everybody.

And the Euro sign "€" is not the officially approved currency symbol by the 
European Union and might be not understood / wrongly formatted in other parts
of the world. Therefore I prefer "EUR".

I can't work on the banner today (not at my own computer), but I'll try tomorrow, if 
we can reach an agreement on the wording.

Best regards
