A problem saving the euro sign (and a solution)
Submitted by jgellene on Monday, 7 January, 2002 - 20:02
You need to use instead the iso-8859-15 character set, which is a modification of iso-8859-1 that includes the Euro sign and some Finnish and French characters. The Euro sign represents character value 0xA4 in this 8-bit set.

There is a new addition to the downloads area, euro.bsh, that can be used as a startup script to provide macro methods to help you with your use of the Euro. The methods let you insert a Euro currency character, change the current buffer's encoding to iso-8859-15, and open a file with that encoding.

To open a file with this encoding manually in jEdit, select "File>Open with Encoding>Open With Other Encoding", and enter 8859_15 in the displayed dialog.
