Salut Yves,

If your request does not fit easily into Jan's algorithm, take a look 
at the format handlers in Serendipity Library 

After using the Library's Number Edit Mask dialog to set the stack's 
numberEditMask (which specifies decimal separator, thousands 
separator, currency symbol, & prefix/suffix currency) and having your 
stack start using the Library, you would...

	put formatNumber(genericNumberString,2[,false]) into field 
"Your Field Here"

True in the third argument includes the currency symbol.
