Belgium - Euro symbol location

Description

After trying to figure out why my application was showing the € sign _after_ the number in an application with nl_BE locale, I came accross someone else who tracked it down to the specification.

So after checking it out in the common/main/nl_BE.xml, I came across:

<pattern>#,##0.00 ¤</pattern>

Which should actually be :

<pattern>¤ #,##0.00;¤ -#,##0.00</pattern>

Note: One difference (as far as I've discerned) is that if the number is .e.g. 20, it'd be € 20 (with a thin space), versus the nl_NL counterpart which'd be € 20,-.

Note: I'm refering to the Dutch (nl_BE) specification only.
I'm not proposing to chance fr_BE since I have no knowledge about that Locale.
