I haven't looked too much at the tags in use, but noticed an inconsistency in the currency tags for this question -- 'usd' and 'british-pound'. I thought I'd create a meta question to discuss.

Did one of the other stack exchanges use both the abbreviation and the name as the tag like this:

, , etc.

    I just established a new tag 'cad-canadian-dollar' here: money.stackexchange.com/questions/5558/… ... we should change the other currency tags over time to match. Jan 10 '11 at 14:38
  • I've changed USD and GBP to the new style tag, and added a couple of more synonyms (noticed you had at least a couple there already.) Jan 11 '11 at 20:17
  • Just added eur-euro and a synonym from euro to eur-euro.

Currencies have standard names (usd, gbp, etc.) so maybe standardize on them and alias other names ("us-dollar", "british-pound", "uk-pound") to them?
