I want to point out that Ladislav Mecir has updated these documents for recent changes and clarifications:

BTW, I am not sure why these wiki pages use different format templates. If someone wants to make them consistent, that would be good.

The Decimal is a cookbook recipe, while the Money document is not. It's generally a good idea to promote "stray" documents to recipes and list them in the cookbook recipe list here:

Thanks to Ladislav for doing that! These are important details to have.

I have to say, though, that the division results for money would be a lot friendlier if trailing zeros were omitted after two decimal places, and brings up the question of whether percent! should be implemented as decimal! or bignum.

As it is, we need to make sure that general docs note that you should always round money! when divided.
