Converting "this is 9.99&# 8364; of stuff" (unnecessary space between # and 8, cause Github wouldn't show it correctly) to "this is 9.99€ worth of stuff", i.e. a simple unicode conversion for what concerns decimal representations. Not entirely tested out, that said, no hex support either. Was made on a request :P
