Exactly how did you try to include the euro (sic) symbol? I have
no difficulties (as far as validity is concerned) in using the character
reference &#8364; or the entity reference &euro;, irrespectively of
charset. And when I use a document in announced ISO-8859-15 encoding,
I can use the euro sign as such, as actual data, octet 164 (decimal),
with no problem with a validator (though surely with some problems with
some browsers).

What's the URL of your attempt? My guess of the day is that you actually
tried to use octet 128 (decimal), which is incorrect data in any ISO 8859
encoding (and should be reported by a validator).
