Consider changing ($1) to -$1

Description

One of our people brought up the issue that we are still using () with negative currency amounts. At least in English, people would probably be more accustomed to using the minus sign instead, eg

A

   -$135
     $95
(CHF 666)

B

   ($135)
     $95
(CHF 666)

The parens also cause an inconsistency when a section is presented with a common currency:

C
Currency: USD ($)

-135
  95

I think we've just kept the () these many years from inertia... We should consider changing the () forms to -:

  • perhaps initially just for English;
  • perhaps also moving the old form to an alt="accounting".
