The Currency Selection is a Mess . The common currencies - eg. Euros - should be
grouped together . If a currency symbol is used in a suffixed format it should
be shown as such - ie. France € , not € France .

Try it - set up your test work sheets to work in dual currency mode - say GBP
and Euros - then try to select a Euro currency . I know working internationally
is a thing that americans find it very hard to do - currencies and languages
etc. - but it is a fact of life . We in Europe work in multiple currencies hence
when we see the list that OpenOffice drops down it is AAARRGGHHH !!! - compare
it to Excel which is much better organised .
