europa.eu.int is too busy to answer right now; I suspect it's running
on a Microsoft platform.
However, the Commission has been wrong before, and I think it is wrong
this time too.
(Its support for OSI is not really relevant here...)
I forgot to say so in my previous messgae: Your second proposal
(defining new character sets) is MUCH more reasonable than the first
I wish, however, that you had targeted the currency symbol rather than
the vertical bar for replacement; the idea that a currency symbol without
specifying which currency it refers to had any value whatsoever is
even less realistic than the idea of modifying ASCII to fit the Euro.
I wish you luck in what I consider to be a hopeless task :-)
