You claim (using the rather nasty meta http-equiv instead of real http
headers) that the document is written in ISO-8859-1. That character
encoding doesn't include a Euro character.

Find out what character set you are actually using (ISO-8859-15 is
IIRC ISO-8859-1 plus the Euro sign, I believe that UTF-8 also includes
a Euro character) and specify that instead of the incorrect claim you
currently make.
