I'm using a classifieds script that automatically inserts a pre-defined(by me) currency symbol next to the price people enter for the product they're selling. But I want to expand the classifieds globally, and it'd be easy for me if I can just have people enter their appropriate currency symbol.
I think a combination of the two might work well in a dropdown...
£ - GBP
$ - USD
This might be a good scinario to use location detection? Present the user with a currency based on their country or origin, but with the option to change it.
as in all modern "azertyuiop" keyboards ..
Some of you may be getting "short changed" ;) on the keyboards supplied with your machines :)
"Normally" you get the keyboard which matches your machine ( if you buy a "desktop pack" ) or a laptop ..both of which match your local currency ..plus $ and £ built in ..
Hmm - I don't know - I am guessing most Americans wouldn't give it another thought, but if you live in a Country that uses a Currency Symbol like g1smd suggests - then I am sure they would be familiar with it - as they are probably frustrated dealing with people assuming $ = USD (which I would have unless I REALLY thought about it).
When in doubt on things like this - I often look to Amazon to see what they do. They seem to use the three character code when talking about currencies.
Just my 2 Cents - I mean .02 (USD).
