    I noticed that Java 1.2 and later distinguish the decimal separator from
    the monetary decimal separator. That is, DecimalFormatSymbols has both
    getDecimalSeparator() and getMonetaryDecimalSeparator() methods. Does
    anyone happen to know of a locale where these two values are different?
    I wrote a little program to search for cases, but none of the locales
    installed in my Java 5 VM ever seem to think these two characters are
