Florin is the Dutch Guilder, a.k.a. HFl and Gulden. It is derived from the
name of the city Florence, a.k.a. Firence, where banking was invented. Too
bad the Europeans are so confused.
Mea culpa. I knew this, like I knew the character, but I just found it
hard to credit that an American company would get something so
European right for once - my apologies for prejudging them.
