:-) I will add now the Jordanian Dinars, the ones that I need now, but
it will be a door Operner for more :-) as you want your code to support
Localization.. I suggest using ISO codes for currencies as a standard..
I will create a directory names "jod" for Jordanian Dinar..
So to follow the ISO standard for currency codes, it would be better to
rename the directory boards/money/euro to eur or EUR
just a suggestions..

The code seems to be prety simple and organized and nicly structure, and
it will not be pain to wrk on it :)
I would love to work on this .. this does not seem to be a hard to code.
Of course I can do C, but I never coded a program that use XML although
I read about it alot.. so this will be by first XML experience, be easy
on me :-) I will look into other board codes (that use XML) and see how
they are done, If you suggest files/ to look at I will be greatful ..

I was talking about the World Map board.. the one that you can put
countries on a continant .. I wanted to add more to it.. maybe put a
Country map, and ask them to place Cities, or Put the Middle east map,
and so ..

infact .. what I did was msgfmt -o gcompris.mo ar.po .. and then copied
the gcompres.mo and replaced the one in locale/ar .. I was the KDE and
Gnome Arabic translation maintainer :-) so I know about these things..
