First correct notations for currency taken in my old ARexx script YAE (1999)...
EUR VALUE IN (conforming ISO 4217 standard)
French Republic French franc FRF 6.55957
Federal Republic of Germany German mark DEM 1.95583
Italian Republic Italian lira ITL 1936.27000
Kingdom of Spain Spanish peseta ESP 166.38600
Portuguese Republic Portuguese escudo PTE 200.48200
Republic of Austria Austrian schilling ATS 13.76030
Ireland Irish pound IEP 0.78756
Kingdom of the Netherlands Dutch guilder NLG 2.20371
Kingdom of Belgium Belgian franc BEF 40.33990
Republic of Finland Finnish markka FIM 5.94573
The POINT notation for thousands is not used in France (Europe ?).
The comma (,) is use to separate euros and cents.
Euro : 123 456,00 EUR
As i don't use yet unicode (16 bits) charset on my Amiga mailer (YAM), i obtain a only
a little box (null character) in display instead of Euro character when i received emails
send in Windows1252 charset ;-( This problem is the same with lot of browsers on Linux,
M$ doesn't respect the official norm so the Windows1252 charset use the FALSE position
128 in (x80) classic ascii table... Others OS (the reference is Latin 9 (ISO-8859-15)
use the TRUE position 164 (xA4) in ISO-8859-15 charset (replace the old ISO 8859-1 also
known as Latin-1).
To obtain the EURo char, type AltGr + E on european keyboard (french, etc...) and AltGr
+ 5 on US keyboard
Very complex for just a character... Personally, i often use "EUR" the ISO4217 notation
