Hello Eva,

The AngularJS interfaces are using the built-in currency filter, which
supplies a dollar sign by default.  More here:


It does appear that the filter can specify a different symbol; it is fairly
limited otherwise.  The newer Angular looks to be more robust in allowing
locale-specific currency formatting options.

If you care mainly about the symbol, you should be able to change that by
modifying each place that filter is used, but that doesn't seem very
practical.  If that doesn't seem viable for you, we probably need to look
at expanding how that filter is processed to allow for better optional
behavior.  Tacking on a root variable similar to date formatting doesn't
seem too terrible.

Hopefully someone with more direct knowledge will chime in and let us know
there is already an easier way.
