The issue only appears to have come up for the British Pound symbol, so I
left it at that. If someone finds a need to support a third symbol, or
support multi-byte currency symbols, or support textual designations such as
"USD", then that's obviously going to require more changes, perhaps even
allowing any series of non-numeric bytes before and after the actual value.
But I don't know if that leaves the door too wide open, since "TESTING 123"
would be considered valid.
Since doing it this way was such a small change, I decided to just get it
