Maybe this is how to settle the Euro glyph thing:
Instead of talking about it, write the Euro glyph
on a piece of paper with a pen, scan it in, and post
it. If we STILL can't agree on what it looks like,
very politely request that one of the people in CHARGE
of this Euro thing please write the Euro glyph with
a pen, and then scan in what she wrote and post it.
Historically, aren't typeface glyphs based on handwritten
glyphs? Why should some typeface designer decide
what the glyph should look like?!
