Our default currency in the UK is still the pound sterling. It will take
more than you changing some settings to change it to the Euro! :-)

The Euro symbol is available, and should be displayed correctly if you
have a suitable font, in CP1252 and ISO-8859-1 which are the usual
legacy encodings used in the UK - and of course in Unicode. I assume you
are not using a system from before about 1998 when the Euro was added to
systems and fonts. Anything beyond that depends on what system you are
referring to, and so is probably not really a matter for this list.
