Can Javascript change a currency format based on users Windows Location settings?

Jimphot0 asked

Hello - I have tried to find a solution for this problem in the Lotus Notes areas but to no avail.
So here goes: I have a web form from Notes that sends a USD currency format of $18.11 to a shopping cart and for some European customers they are getting charged $18.00 - After a phone call to a user and walking through the website, I see that as soon as they open the web page, the total is already showing as
"18,00 Euros" - My question is: Can javascript detect the user's Regional settings and reformat the value coming from the currency field to the proper format based on Region?
Thanks in advance to anyone who helps.
