Moreover, on the same template I can see that the price is generated by php method formatCurrency and one of the parameters in this method is "getIncludedContainer" (true or false). At first I thought this parameter was the one responsible for showing the "span class price" tag (so it makes sense to have it true or false based on whatever you want the class to be displayed or not), but changing this value to false seems to do nothing so I now wonder what is this parameter about? How price is effected by setting this parameter to false?
Did you ever figure out how to do this? its driving me crazy. I want to save dollars, decimal point, cents into 3 different variables to style but can't figure it out. I've been able to do it for simple products but those with price options I can't get it to work
