    Not that it really matters, but it's zloty (złoty, to be precise). Zolty (żółty) would mean "yellow", while "złoty" means "golden".

    Sorry, Polish of all languages defeats me so often.
    I should have checked that, but even a translation program would have left me clueless.
    It gets worse if you try to use a Polish to English translator.
    Curiously enough, German and French are comparatively easy, its probably due more to crappy programming then anything else.

    Just out of curiosity, what are the roots of the language?
    Many credit English, French, and Spanish as having common roots as so called "romance" languages, but there is a strong German influence there that doesn't always get acknowledged.
