The combination of setlocale and money_format worked for me in php 4.3.4.  Upgrading to php 4.3.6 and changing servers seems to have broken setlocale and/or money_format.

Reproduce code:
setlocale(LC_MONETARY, 'en_US');
print money_format('%.2n',$item);
# prints 987654.321

Please try using this CVS snapshot:
For Windows:

Works fine here, keep in mind that PHP's money_format() 
function is a direct wrapper around the libc C equivalent. 
If it does not work this has likely to do with your libc 
then PHP.

I have this same issue on PHP 4.3.10 on IIS 5.0

Documentation stats this works on all PHP > 4.3.0 yet it apparently does not.

It looks like this funtion may require other software installed on the server besides PHP. Why can't this just be included in PHP like ever other PHP function I have used?

I too have the same problem with money_format() with PHP 4.3.10

It only formats the input string half of the time for me though.
