While I am inclined to agree, here's a wee challenge for you:  

Accountant types like their debits and credits shown as:
 a) absolute numbers, followed by "dr" for positive numbers
        and "cr" for negative numbers, or:
 b) the negative sign in the front, or:
 c) negative numbers shown in brackets, as in ($112,345.67)

I have tried for years to figure out how to make user-defined edit codes
to do these for me.
