I am using the code below to display a $ amount on my site based on a shopping cart script...It works fine but prints out as 10.00 or 11.55 or 12.04 I want to convert it to USD such as $12.05 or $11.00..I know I can simply add a $ in front of it, but I may need to use different currency types..Thanks
<SCRIPT language="JavaScript">
Print_total();
</script>

Here you go..thanks
function Print_total( ) {
var strOutput = ""; //String to be written to page
var strTotal = ""; //Total cost formatted as money
var fTotal = 0;
var iNumberOrdered = 0; //Number of products ordered


iNumberOrdered = GetCookie("NumberOrdered");
if ( iNumberOrdered == null )
iNumberOrdered = 0;


for ( i = 1; i <= iNumberOrdered; i++ ) {

NewOrder = "Order." + i;
database = "";
database = GetCookie(NewOrder);

Token0 = database.indexOf("|", 0);
Token1 = database.indexOf("|", Token0+1);
Token2 = database.indexOf("|", Token1+1);
Token3 = database.indexOf("|", Token2+1);
Token4 = database.indexOf("|", Token3+1);

fields = new Array;
fields[0] = database.substring( 0, Token0 ); // Product ID
fields[1] = database.substring( Token0+1, Token1 ); // Quantity
fields[2] = database.substring( Token1+1, Token2 ); // Price
fields[3] = database.substring( Token2+1, Token3 ); // Product Name/Description
fields[4] = database.substring( Token3+1, Token4 ); // Weight
fields[5] = database.substring( Token4+1, database.length ); //Additional Information

fTotal += (parseInt(fields[1]) * parseFloat(fields[2]) );

}

strTotal = moneyFormat(fTotal);
strOutput+=strTotal;
document.write(strOutput);
