       Oh, sorry, Peter. Yes, we initially develop for Macintosh Type
       1, then do conversions for other platforms/formats once fonts
       are finalized. In MacRoman, the Euro goes in Dec 219. That slot
       doesn't seem to be available in Cyrillics.

       If you have this information, great. If not, I'll dig around
       some more. Thanks for your quick response. I appreciate your

       Have a good weekend.
       Thanks, Tamye
