Euro-sign test

Post by Craco » Fri Mar 01, 2002 8:15 pm

I see that quite a few people have problems with the Euro-sign in the posts which displays like very weird characters...

Just wanted to tests my Euro-sign on my home-computer:
Here it comes:

€ = Euro

Greetz,
(why am i putting Greetz? nobody will read this :roll: )

Look at this thread, they say it's a browser problem:

http://phpbb.sourceforge.net/phpBB2/vie ... light=euro

Another way to type the Euro sign: press and hold the left Alt, type 0128 using the numeric keypad, release left Alt and the char appears.

left Alt+0128: €

right Alt (Alt Gr)+e: €

Nope, not here. Some other post display the € sign OK.
I'm not using the € sign often. Mostly I use '5 Euro 25' or 'E 5,25' or something.
On usenet I many times see it is going wrong and the posts have a ?
instead of the €. That's why I almost never use the special sign.

Just tried the "quote" function. Looks strange. Must I upgrade to IE 6?

Well, it looks better in the preview.
