    You don't remember the encoding of the EURO SIGN, as many of us do.

    What of it? I am in one time zone, and the L2 and WG2 registries are in another.

    What I did in writing the proposal and submitting it in a timely fashion, and in telling some of the Indian websites about it, may help to prevent a misuse of the existing RUPEE SIGN.

    This is called "being responsive". And I did the same thing with the HRYVNIA SIGN, and the TENGE SIGN, and I shall do so with the RUBLE SIGN when it solifies.
