begin John Madden quotation:
> Does anyone know how to get the euro character in emacs??
In what character set? ISO-8859-1 (Latin-1) does not yet contain it.
Microsoft Corporation has been promoting a non-standard "extended"
ISO-8859-1 that has (among other things) the Euro symbol in position
There's been a proposal to create a new ISO-8859 variant called Latin-0
with the Euro replacing the +/- sign at position B1h.
Meanwhile, ISO-8859-15 (Latin-9) has the Euro at position 164 (A4h). To
quote the Linux kernel documentation, it's "an update to Latin 1 that
removes a handful of rarely used characters and instead adds support for
Estonian, corrects the support for French and Finnish, and adds the new
Euro character." That's probably your best standards-compliant
solution, unless and until we start bandying bad words like "Unicode".
