Cape Verde Escudo #,##0¤00

Reported by: mimckenna@… Owned by: emmons
Component: other Data Locale:
Phase: rc Review: pedberg
Weeks: Data Xpath: /main/pt-CV/numbers/currencyFormats-numberSystem-latn/standard


It appears every single currency in CLDR has the currency symbol as prefix or postfix. The Cape Verde Escudo still uses the old Portuguese style with the currency symbol used as a decimal separator.

Therefore, I propose, if feasible, to support the Escudo:

Problem: the currency formats for pt-CV and kea-CV would have to be changed to:


which would work for the Escudo as


but, for non-Escudo's it would inherit the pattern for substitution, so GBP would appear as


or Swiss Francs as


which is strange.

Anyway - something to consider. This is NOT a high priority for our team or PayPal.

We have the ability to specify a different pattern for a particular currency only so that's not a huge problem - what we would need to do would be to specify something like:

<currency type="CVE">

Problem is, I don't know how to get around the problem of us having a currency format with no currency symbol. We'll have to see if there's a way to get around that.

Seems ICU isn't handling this well at all, see http://bugs.icu-project.org/trac/ticket/11035 .
I think the proper way to handle it will be to use "$" for the decimal separator and a ZWJ for the currency "symbol", since currency patterns have to have a "symbol". But I would like to have ICU handling this properly if at all possible...
