The name of the Euro

Dear colleagues:

I am compiling a list of national practices for naming the euro. I
understand that some countries keep the English/French spelling and others
do not. Please can you send me mail privately giving the words "euro" and
"cent" in nominative singular and nominative plural. Example:

English: euro, euros; cent, cents
French: euro, euros; cent, cents (this example may be wrong)
Estonian: euro, eurod; sent, sentid (this example may be wrong)

Also, an example of the following:

1 euro and 50 cents
5 euros and 6 cents

I have already asked this on the TC304 list, but from the Unicode list I'd
appreciate data for Italian, Spanish, and Portuguese. I will summarise the
results when I have compiled them.

Best regards,

Michael Everson, Everson Gunn Teoranta **
