Description

It has come to my attention that the currency code BRL for the "other" plural category is currently "Brazilian reals". I've been told that it should really be Brazilian reais, and it seems that the Wikipedia and Wiktionary articles about this currency agrees with this point when referring to the Brazilian currency.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brazilian_real
http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/real

I recommend changing the plural form to the proper spelling.

Need more confirmation (other than Wikipedia) that "reais" is the most recognizable English form.

The WSJ isn't a good reference because it's behind a paywall.

It might be better to put it as an alternative with alt="variant".

Click on Euros or Brazilian Reais

The Brazilian Real is also known as Reals

So both seem to be used.

Mark, can you take a look at this? If I try to add the variant, CLDRFile has some problems with it. CLDRFile.fullIterable is returning an xpath like :

Path is => //ldml/numbers/currencies/currency[@type="BRL"]/displayName[@count="one[@alt="variant"]"]
