Has any thought about how the introduction of the Euro symbol will
affect readability on the web. 

Coming from the Win32 world, I know that Euro enabled (Western) fonts
are available from MS but I'm not so sure the availability of Euro
enabled Eastern default fonts on Win32 or on other platforms for that
matter.

Having come across this issue in my own work, I was wondering whether
it would open a can of worms when European web pages started to be
made using the Euro symbol which I guess most people wouldn't be able
to read without a font upgrade...
