AirBNB offering rooms in Spain for $4 per night

I can imagine exactly how this happened (I had recently moved my computer from South Africa to Europe) but should AirBNB not have worked out a way to actually display a euro sign when giving the prices in euro? At R42 (around $4) per night, it does look like a bargain... This is rather sloppy programming but I have seen the same kind of thing at banks, of all places. Is it not time for a basic price data type (perhaps "monetary") which always has an assigned currency symbol, rules for rounding and so on?
