You could use a character encoding that includes the euro
sign. ISO-8895-15 is AFAIK still the official character
encoding for the euro zone. Another option is UTF-8
(variable length encoding of ISO-10646) or BMP (16 bit
subset of ISO-10646 - used for Wide_Character).
The most popular choice seems to be UTF-8 .
 I dislike the use of UTF-8, since ASCII is a pure subset
encoding, and many programmers seem to forget to test if
their UTF-8 implementations actually work for more than
just plain ASCII. <down from soap-box>
