I saw that and think more is still needed. Surely cents are not the
only modern non-default currency unit, but that's the only one in the
examples. How can we discuss the others if we don't know what they
look like in publishing? I don't want to (further) waste anyone's
time discussing a solution for cents only to discover afterward it
won't work for another commonly-published type of currency we hadn't
yet considered. So I'll be collecting more examples.

No. I wondered the same thing during previous currency discussion,
researched the topic, and wrote about what I found here:
Summary: There are two countries that still formally have non-decimal
currency, but not in practice.
