I'm not sure if this will come out ?

  Valvegrid 21:35 08 Aug 2003

No it doesn't, but try going to start>run>system tools and clicking on character map and you should find it there.

Press ALT+0128

Use the numeric keys.

This will give you the Euro ;-)

You need to press and hold the Alt Gr key and press the figure 4 key along the top row, not on the number keypad. The figure 4 key should show $ 4 and ?, if it doesn't you need a new keyboard.

Sorry, the euro sign came out as a ? so it looks like the PC forum can't show the euro symbol, but it should be on the number 4 key along the top row. Although as Powerless says it is Alt+0128. You must have "Num lock" on to use the keypad though.

Press Alt Gr which is on the right of the space bar and the number 4 key along tho top of the alpha keys and you get a ?. At least you do with my Microsoft Internet key board. I don't know if other key boards work like this, but its worth a try.

It came out as a ? after going thro PCAdvisor computer, so I think there could be more to it than I first thought. But give it a try it came out on my puter.

?......Alt 0128, without the space.

€ in other modes. i.e. html etc,.
