My main point is that while we're doing this, we ought to take a long look at how foreign characters (currency in particular) are handled. If you need to set locale, WHY??? currency symbols are NOT locale-specific. eg, I might receive a message from Usenet saying "they are $4.00". My locale is set to en_GB, so I can't see "$" properly? (Just as silly as the reverse with pound symbol). Accented, foreign (eg cyrillic) characters matter less, but this really should be sorted. -- Tom Lees <email@example.com> <firstname.lastname@example.org> http://www.lpsg.demon.co.uk/ PGP Key: finger email@example.com, http://www.lpsg.demon.co.uk/pgpkeys.asc.
