    Same here, currency conversion does not work. Others work, unless you try to use the currency conversion. After that, Quit Calc and then the others work again. What a bummer. Please fix this asap.

    I managed to find a copy of FinancialRates.xml . It's old (Nov 30, 2007), but updating the rates by hand isn't difficult. http://www.kvarnen.dk/Pi%20Backup/Skole/Matematik/Calculator.app/Contents/Resour ces/FinancialRates.xml

    In case the link goes down, here's the structure of the file:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <response>
    <result type="convertcurrency" timestamp="1196448943">
    <list count="45" total="45">
    ( list of conversions )
    </list>
    </result>
    </response>

    Each conversion has the form:

    <conversion>
    <from>USD</from>
    <to>AUD</to>
    <amount>1</amount>
    <convertedamount>1.1276509762</convertedamount>
    <link>http://finance.yahoo.com/m3?a=1& amp;s=usd& amp;t=aud</link>
    </conversion>
    (Remove the spaces after the '&'s; I needed them to prevent autoformatting.)

    Conversions exist from USD to: USD, AUD, BRL, GBP, CAD, CNY, DKK, EUR, HKD, INR, JPY, MYR, MXN, NZD, NOK, RUB, SGD, ZAR, KRW, LKR, SEK, CHF, TWD, THB, VEB, BHD, BND, CLP, CYP, CZK, HUF, ISK, IDR, ILS, KZT, KWD, MTL, MUR, NPR, OMR, PKR, QAR, SAR, SKK, AED . I have not been able to figure out how it translates abbreviations into currency names, so I would suggest keeping them in that order in case it's hardcoded.
