Sign position in nl inconsistent between standard and compact notation

Reported by: shane Owned by: anybody
Component: currency Data Locale:
Phase: dsub Review:
Weeks: Data Xpath:


Locale nl, en_NL, and es_PY have the following pattern for currency.

¤ #,##0.00;¤ -#,##0.00

However, none of these locales have explicit negative subpatterns in compact currency notation. This results in the following output for negative currencies when following all formatting rules (example in nl):

€ -98
€ -981
-€ 9,8K
-€ 98K

Presumably it would be better if the entries with the thousands suffix also put the sign after the currency symbol. In other words, the compact patterns should get the appropriate negative subpatterns.

I'm using nl as an example, but the same problem probably applies to the dozen other locales with nonstandard positions for their sign.
