Microsoft Money Standard 2003

I currently use MS Money Standard 2000, and have been looking for the 2003 version (as above) to use with my current W98SE and the potential purchase of a new PC later this year, with WinXP. I have been totally confused in my efforts to purchase a copy of this software.

Firstly, in the Mesh advertisement in the March edition on PCA (and in previous editions), there is an illustration of the MS Money Standard 2003 box, which I have been searching for but unable to find. It does not appear on the MS UK website, but Mesh appear to have it. Since November 2002, my local PC World have had a version simply designated Money 2003, but it does not say which version it is. On the barcode sticker it refers to it as Money Deluxe UK only, but "Deluxe" is the USA version designed primarily for on-line banking, which I do not use. To add to the confusion, PC World are now selling this off at £19.99 which suggests it is a discontinued version. I now read in March PCA (page 121) that MS will be introducing a 2003 version "in the UK in Spring". It is also referred to as Money Deluxe, so I am now completely confused!

So, my question is, what is the basic version called? Is it Money Standard as offered and illustrated in the Mesh advertisement and familiar to UK users? Or, have they adopted the USA name of Money Deluxe? And if the latter is the case, why is a Spring release mentioned when it has been available here since November last year? More to the point, is this the heavily Internet version developed for on-line banking, or can it be used for ordinary bank accounts as my 2000 version can. I have no Internet connection on my home PC, nor do I wish one. I get what little net access I need via another PC.
