The euro sign in HTML (and in some other contexts): I had to use that weird euro sign in the last post. I copped out and just wrote “euro.” Here’s a page full of different ways to handle the Euro in HTML. Interesting.
In HTML documents, it is best to refer to the euro currency with words and to avoid using the euro sign, until sufficiently widespread support to it exists in browsers. If you use the euro sign, the correct numeric reference is & # 8 3 6 4; and the correct entity reference is & e u r o;. This document also discusses some alternative methods, such as using an image, and also some incorrect methods.
