I wonder why this was so important, the most important features are not
related to written out text, the amount (dix euros in France, ten euros
in Ireland for example) and some legal text could have been different
(the traditional «La loi punit le contrefacteur» in France) if only the
amount were also written as «10 € » / « € 10 » in a few places. There
could be no possible confusion. The banknotes are produced by national
mints. The coin differ from country to country (one side at least), why
couldn't the banknotes show some of the diversity the UE pretends to
consider as a treasure.
