US to redesign banknotes for blind

About blooming time too! I've said that there was a problem with the US bank notes for ages. How do blind people there tell a $1 bill from a $100 or even a $1000?

Seems like I wasn't alone as the American Council for the Blind has just won a court ruling which, if it succeeds (and I'm pretty sure there's a lot more work for the lawyers here) will force America to make changes to their currency. Mind you, with their current currency problems they'll probably need to design and print higher denominations soon enough anyway!
