Interesting, because in the Microsoft Manual of Style (I'm looking at the
third edition at the moment, fourth may say something different) under the
heading for euros it says (in part):

"When expressing an amount in euros and cents in U.S. content, use a
decimal point as the
delimiter. Different localities may use a decimal point or a comma, as
appropriate.
Correct
E3.50"

Sometimes I think that Apple and Microsoft do things differently on
purpose, not because it necessarily makes any sense, but just to be
different from each other.
