Isn't Euro support added to all CP1252 versions of Windows 98 and later,
and in Windows 95 if people manually visit some Microsoft web page and
download an update for this? My copy of “iconv” for Linux supports € in
CP1252, and all of my other CP1252-compatible programs (e.g. Mozilla)
also seem to support it.
