 Euro - Encyclopedia, History, Geography and Biography
The euro is widely perceived to be one of two, or perhaps three, major global reserve currencies, making inroads on the widely used U.S. dollar (USD), which has historically been used by commercial and central banks world-wide as a stable reserve on which to ensure their liquidity and facilitate international transactions.
The effect of this selective reference is misleading, as it give to the observers the impression that a rise in the value of the euro vs the dollar is the effect of an increased global strength of the euro, while it may be the effect of an intrinsic weakening of the dollar itself.
However, the dollar recovered in 2005, rising to 1.18 $/€ (0.85 €/$) in July 2005 (and stable throughout the second half of 2005).

For example, Dollar General is a general store or "five and dime" store that sets price points only at even amounts, such as exactly one, two, three, five, or ten dollars (among others).

 RFC 2396 (rfc2396) - Uniform Resource Identifiers (URI): Generic Syntax
The greedy algorithm is used for disambiguation: the left-most matching rule soaks up as much of the URI reference string as it is capable of matching.
Since the "greedy algorithm" described in that section is identical to the disambiguation method used by POSIX regular expressions, it is natural and commonplace to use a regular expression for parsing the potential four components and fragment identifier of a URI reference.
The plus "+", dollar "$", and comma "," characters have been added to those in the "reserved" set, since they are treated as reserved within the query component.
