        Description

        FULL PRODUCT VERSION :
        java version "1.6.0"
        Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0-b105)
        Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.6.0-b105, mixed mode, sharing)


        ADDITIONAL OS VERSION INFORMATION :
        Linux 2.6.21-1.3194.fc7

        A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
        If locale is the default locale, US, then the symbol "$" is returned. However,
        there are other locales that also have the "$" as their currency. These locales
        need to differentiate the American dollar using "US$". Currently, "USD" is
        returned.

        EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
        EXPECTED -
        $
        US$
        ACTUAL -
        $
        USD

        REPRODUCIBILITY :
        This bug can be reproduced always.
