    RE: ISO 10646 compliance and EU law

    I am not sure it is as simple as that. AFAIK, EU is trying to enforce some rules about the Euro spelling. Namely, they want it to always start with "EURO" even if a certain country uses different suffixes in declensions.

    or simply plural.

    This breaks two rules in Slovenian language, one is that V should be used instead of U and that for example 2 Euro

    Which should be 2 Euros (in English and French for example) except in Brussels-speak.

    is spelled 2 Evra, which doesn't preserve all four letters (regardless of V vs. U). I don't know what are the latest developments but it looks like some new members will use one form in their everyday life and another when communicating with EU.

    Similarly, I suppose EU might be wanting Bulgaria to use ЕУРО, since it transliterates to EURO, while ЕВРО transliterates to EVRO.

    Brussels is meddling again and wanting to have a single size fit all.
