READ THIS: Be aware that the site where the currency feed is extracted from ( can change the format of its page from time to time (on average once every two years). This can have the adverse effect of changing the currency conversion rate. If this occurs then changes will need to be made. You can contact me and I will make the changes for you.  You can of course make the changes yourself, send them to me and I will be glad to share them with the world. The new version here will be kept updated as soon as I know of a change to the feed page. It is in your interests to let me know if things change!

If you want to be kept informed of any changes then contact me using the contact page.
