Subject: Re: Euro currency sign

rest assured:
the glyph used by both the Unicode book and the ISO 10646 standard
bears very little resembleance to the European CE marking.

(the glyph looks like an E implaed on the lower branch of the C; the
European CE mark is the letters C and E to the same baseline, written
in a very weird font. Rather like 2282 SUBSET OF followed by 2208
ELEMENT OF, but narrower)
