I have changed the upper case to "Camel Case".

This is something which should be done in CSS.

About how currencies are exposed,

IMO, currencies should be stored in a separate table, to be referred by the standard abbreviation. That way, we could easily change the display at will. Different displays are probably appropriate for different parts of the site; e.g., tables of lots of offers should probably use the abbreviation to save space, while the print CSS could put the long name in parentheses after the abbreviation, for clarity, with :after.

Great idea!

We have just to look for such converter.


Another small thing: How about moving the employer type to the heading, and using "Name" instead. I.e., heading like "Employer (person)", and "Name: Crossland , Dave"? For any other employer types than "Person", we could then use just the type, i.e., "Company" or "Organization". It should be fairly obvious from the context that "Company" or "Organization" is the employer (not so much with "Person"), without pointing it out. I guess it's a matter of brevity vs. clarity. What do you think?
