"Most banknotes are made from cotton paper with a weight of 80 to 90 grams per square meter."

To the best of my knowledge idioms expressing this sentiment exist in many labguages and cultures. But, it was ky understanding that Esperanto didn't often express concepts idiomatically? I know krokodili (and the associated reptiles). But, wouldbit be better to translate this sentence from an idiom into a literally expression. Something like, "mono ne estas senfina."
