The Fixedsys font has no Euro glyph

And therefore if you are viewing this in IE or Firefox, instead of a big fat Euro, you'll will see a big fat square.

Opera, however does the right thing and displays the Euro symbol from a different font. Which font? How does it find it? I don't know, but it does it.


Works fine for me in Firefox 1.0.5/XP.
1.0.3 Firefox shows it just fine too.
Hmm.. 1.0.4 works to. I need to check the version on that computer I was using when I blogged that. It may be something less than 1.0.3, which means it probably needs to be upgraded anyhow.
Nope.. 1.0.3 on XP, and it doesn't work. Go figure.
Works on 1.04 on OS X.
