Characters are never displayed "automatically": they're only
displayed if
 they are present in the buffer.

:-) Ok, i will try to be more precise: If a posting contains the EUR sign (€) then it is displayed automatically (means i have nothing to configure in Gnus for this) correctly in the summary-buffer as well as in the message- or article buffer.

 What is displayed in its place ?

If for example i insert an EUR sign (€) in Microsoft Word, copy it to the clipboard and try to insert it into a normal Emacs-buffer (e.g. *scratch*) then i get only \200.

 Set your LANG envvar to de_DE@euro ?

Ok, after this my *current-language-environment* has value "Latin-9" which seems to be correct but nevertheless i have no success with inserting an EUR sign (€), neither by pasting from the clipboard (still getting \200) nor by hitting the key-combination (German keyboard: Alt Gr + e) which inserts € into a Word-document for example (in Emacs no reaction means nothing is inserted).

Is this clearer now?
