As KenW pointed out, I meant May 1998, not 1988!

I think the Euro at 0x80 for 1252 (and several other 125x code pages)
was added in May 1988. Cathy Wissink can confirm this. It certainly
happened before 1999, since we added support for it in RichEdit 3.0
which shipped with Windows 2000 and Office 2000.

Subject: question about Windows-1252 and Unicode mapping
Any one know/sure when does MS start to introduce EURO signed (0x80 ->
U+20AC), LATIN SMALL LETTER Z WITH CARON (0x9e -> U+017E) and LATIN
CAPITAL LETTER Z WITH CARON (0x8e -> U+017D) into Windows-1252 ? (Date
and which version of windows? Win98? Win98SE or WinMe ?)
It looks like the table in  does not include them, but  include
 1252 Windows Latin 1 (ANSI), Appendix H Code Pages, page 464,
Developing International Software For Windows 95 and Windows NT, Nadine
Kano, Microsoft Press, ISBN 1-55615-840-8
 Microsoft Windows Code Page: 1252 (Latin 1), Appendix I, page 743,
Developing International Software Second Edition, Dr. International,
Microsoft, ISBN 0-7356-1583-7
I recently saw some software pass thorugh other (0x-80-0x9f)
windows-1252 characters correctly but turn these 3 characters to '?'
.... quite interesting result.
