Common Mistakes /
Example 4: Prices and multiple currencies
Date: 23 september 2003

The case:

In a search for contemporary art, I found a very interesting and well presented website. I found an interesting section listing recent acquisition...unfortunately it wasn't mentioned if that was dollars, euros or Belgian francs (Note: the ratio from dollars / euros to Belgian francs was about 1 to 40).

Errors / Recommendations:

Just mention it and that would be solved ! Generally speaking, beware of currencies, length (meters, inches,...), weight (kilo, pound, ...) and all potential differences while speaking to the world !
