Currencies   can be represented in the following ways for each property:

<listprice currency="USD">   using all the available and widely recognized 3 letter codes
                                              This is useful for mixed currency feeds.

<price>
<currency>     Currency node must be in the feed if the currency is not otherwise designated.
                       This is also important for mixed currency feeds.

<listpriceEUR>   mapped as for convenience. Your node may say simply <price> if it is
                          only one currency in the entire feed; either USD or EUR.

<listpriceUSD>   mapped as for convenience. Your node may say simply <price> if it is
