Hello all,

i have the following format for the currency :


This however results in the following exception :

javax.servlet.jsp.JspException: Wrong format string: '###.###,00'
at org.apache.struts.taglib.bean.WriteTag.formatValue(
at org.apache.struts.taglib.bean.WriteTag.doStartTag(

Could someone please explain how i can make a format that will result in :

1.234,00 ?!

Ok i found out it has to do with the locale. When locale is nl it works, when locale is en_US is throws the exception. How can i make sure no matter what the locale is this format pattern works, without me having to declare a lot of format patterns?!
