Subject: Euro for Cyrillics

We are a type foundry, and we have just accepted a number of Cyrillic fonts
into our library. We are currently requiring all type designs to include
the Euro symbol. We know where this goes in Latin fonts (Decimal Slot
219/Currency), so that's not a problem.

However, I cannot find information on where the Euro is supposed to go in
Cyrillic fonts. Slot 219 is generally in use by other characters in
Cyrillic. I have looked on your site, Microsoft's Euro site and Apple's
Euro site. The only information I've come up with states:

"The Unicode assignment of the euro symbol is 20AC. The symbol will be
added to the following codepages at position '0x80'; 1250 Eastern European,
1252 Western, 1253 Greek, 1254 Turkish and 1257 Baltic. In 1251 Cyrillic
the symbol will be added at position '0x88'.

I hope you can provide me with the correct information. I appreciate your
help in this matter.

Thanks, Tamye
