Re: displaying the EUR-Sign in normal buffers

The octal for (the extended ASCII of) the Euro sign is 244.  So to get 
it in emacs, do C-q 244 RETURN (or SPACE or whatever).  This works for 
me.  I'm using 8859-1 encoding.

Yeah, you might have to do a search-and-replace on cut-n-pasted 
documents, but it's better than using a crayon on your monitor.  :)

= I actually accidentally just bumped into the answer:
= Your clipboard/word thing is encoded in codepage 1252 (an MS-only
= extension of latin-1) where the euro is available as char 128
= (i.e. 200 in octal).
= So you should try and set your interprogram coding system to cp1252.
= I'm not sure how to do that.  And I think that Emacs-21.2's support for
= cp1252 is incomplete.
