Updated 4/24/2006: Fixed various bugs.

This function is the heart of the ParseCurrency() function. ParseCurrency breaks up the currency into hundreds sections (digits between commas) and passes them to this function, which returns the text equivalent. ParseCurrency() then appends the proper description (thousands, millions, billions, etc) and continues breaking down the currency recursively.

When implementing, this function should be created first, then ParseDollars(), then ParseCurrency().
