    stupid question- re the euro symbol

    being in usa, how do i acquire/use the Euro symbol on a xp system?

    i am sure this is a dumb question for many of you since you all aint from the $ country.

    Move over here,and use the UK keyboard langauge.

    Try one of these:

    AltGr+5 (If your keyboard doesn't have an AltGr key, use the right hand Alt key)

    or

    Alt+0128 (hold down the Alt key and type 0128 on the numeric keypad)

    Try "Alt-Ctrl-e" in ms word.

    Yeah well other shortcuts go by trial and error. Pressing alt and on the numpad three digits gives a variety of different letters and symbols.

    Just noticed that in linux these shortcuts dont work...dang
