Hi Richard,

Here in France, in Germany, Italy and Spain, we use the euro symbol 
after the amount separated by a space.
I don't know about other countries as Poland or Malta :-)
Normally, comma should be used for decimal separation and stays the 
rule but Anglo American habit gain ground since computer globalization.
Space (usual) or comma (accounting) are used as thousands separators.
You could check commercial web sites...
