I like that idea too, there've been a few similar variations suggested
and they seem the right general approach.
I think it would also make sense to add some rules that could compact
the markup in common cases.
For instance, we could introduce the implied optimisation that if
there is no explicit 'amount' then the amount could be taken to be
everything inside the 'money' that isn't the 'currency'.
i.e. <span class="money"><abbr class="currency"
title="USD">$</abbr>5.99</span> would be equivalent to your example
That would simplify the markup in a large number of the cases, and I
don't think would complicate the parsing *too* much.
