You might be right.  I've got some alternate language sets installed.  

Do a gcc on the file below:

#include <stdio.h>

  int i;
  for(i = 1; i < 256; i++) 
    printf("%3d\t%3o\t%c\n", i, i, i);

then run the executable.  The columns are Decimal, Octal, and the 
corresponding character.  Is octal 244 your Euro sign?


AMD crashes?  See

= No, you're not using 8859-1 encoding because that encoding does not have
