Manuel/Tomas,

If you do locale sensitive currency formatting the currency symbol and
positioning will change.  This means that you will get a text stream in
Unicode for example and then have to translate it to the HTML code page.
You can either scan for U+20AC and insert "&euro;" or convert all
non-translatable characters to NCRs such as "&#8364;".  This is a better
approach as it is more general.
