Remove Currency Format - Can i parse back to a double?

Is it possible to remove a currency format?
For instance i start with a double, e.g. 10.00.
Applying code like below will give the string �10.00.
However, i now want to be able to convert that string back to its double value. Anyone know how i can do this?
Also, its not possible for me to use the original double!
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Hope it helps. Just a note, the parse(String) method will return a long if possible so for your original example it will return a long with a value of 10. Therefore to insure that the final value is a double you must invoke the doubleValue() method. Garrett [ January 21, 2006: Message edited by: Garrett Rowe ]
