Useless - No really, it is
Authored by: Stormchild on Apr 11, '08 08:00:37AM

And perhaps you've heard of the "International" preference pane in System Preferences? Setting the Region will give you the correct currency and numeric separators for the region in which you live.

What a concept.

If you actually need to go in and edit the currency symbol and numeric separators, then you are not using the correct region, or you are not following the correct rules for the region in which you live. Simple.

What was that about doing one's research first?

The Region pop-up on the Formats tab of my International preference pane lists nineteen regions. I think the number available is reduced due to the limited languages that I have installed. Still, I am willing to bet my next annual income against yours that there are many people in the world who speak one of English, French, German or Spanish who would not be covered by one of the regions that I have listed.
