Is there a standard for national currency abreviations ( like happens with
country names in ISO 3166 ) ??.

In the Standarization Bodies you can see the currency codes for the
countries. For example :

http://www.iso.org/iso/en/commcentre/news/dominica.html you can see
Dominica Currency code: XCD

http://www.iso.org/iso/en/commcentre/news/swaziland.html swaziland Currency
Code: SZL

http://www.iso.org/iso/en/commcentre/news/macau.html Currency Code: MOP
(Pataca) and so on.

They are usefull to develop national money translations ( for example, from
euros to dollar, from dollars to yens and so on ).

One could use this three letters codes to translate the currencies in the
websites.

Regards.
