30euro as 30€

Û cut and paste?

Surfergirl Jun 21st, 2003 10:55 PM

Just tried it. Cut & paste works; the &euro does not (on microsoft).

If you are using Microsoft, try holding down the Alt key while typing 0128. If that doesn't work, find Character Map (in XP it is in All Programs>Accessories>System Tools) and it will tell you which keystrokes to use in the various fonts on your computer. You will also find lots of other symbols and foreign letters that aren't on your keyboard you can use with Character Map.

Incidentally, does anyone know the font we are using for these replies?

Surfergirl, you need to put a colon after euro, like this: €

Richardab, on a Mac :-) you can also just type opt+shift+2 (opt+3 for pound sterling sign)

Like this? ? ? I don't think that works!!

LVSue Jun 22nd, 2003 09:41 AM

Works for me: € £

Betsy Jun 22nd, 2003 01:29 PM

€ Well, I'll be! Opt+shift+2 works. May be font sensitive though. I'm on a Mac in Geneva (the font, unfortunately, not the city). Thanks, Sue.

Oops, surfergirl, I should have said semicolon.


My pleasure, Betsy! Love my Mac!

LVSue Jun 22nd, 2003 06:26 PM

Oops again!
