Good question.

I would suggest this:

<span class="money">¢<abbr title="0.021" class="amount">2.1</abbr>  
<span class="currency">USD</span></span>

I also don't see much value in "unit" as I think it would be simpler  
to standardize on a single unit for each currency (i.e. the primary  
unit defined for the given currency in ISO 4217) and use the abbr  
design pattern as above where necessary.
