Hi All

Currently the way to do it is to edit the templates, the currency symbol 
is in the HTML. To do what Al is suggesting shouldnt be to hard, the 
templates would need to be edited so that they are passed through a 
currency symbol.
But for now, the easiest was is to just edit the templates, changing the 
$ to whatever you wish.
