Thanks Ulrich (and Martin). I did'nt know myself what to expect, indeed.
In particular, honestly, I did'nt know :-( that the Euro symbol is in
fact \244 in ISO-8859-15...
I will modify the testsuite accordingly.
While we are at it: could you possibly explain to me which is the
rationale behind using the three char EUR as the international monetary
symbol and the Euro standard symbol itself as the local monetary symbol?
