Sadly, this is meaningless because the octal code depends on the
encoding used.  In cp1252 it's 128, in latin-9 is something else,
in utf-8 it's yet something else, ...

No, you're not using 8859-1 encoding because that encoding does not have
any Euro sign at all.

I feel like I'm sounding very harsh, tho.  Maybe I've had a bad day,
I don't know.  I apologize in advance.
