Default check formats always print "Euros" on the printed line. Where do I change that to "dollars" and where can I modify the output format of the check itself?

Check https://code.launchpad.net/~bitglue/openobject-addons/7.0-account_check_writing_jam for an improved check writing module that supports USD.

You can see from the RML files in this module how you change the formatting,

It is to be noted that this issue has been fixed on 7.0 and 7.0-SaaS-2 on December 23 2013 at http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~openerp/openobject-addons/7.0/revision/9716 and at http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~openerp/openobject-addons/saas-2/revision/9059

Not being a programmer, none of this really made sense to me. Does this latest comment mean the code referenced in the answer has been incorporated in current 7.0 updates? If so, what modules do I need to update from the interface and then how do I get to the RML files?
