-title: Typesetting the Euro sign 
-category: formatting 
-permalink: /FAQ-euro

- 
-The European currency "​Euro"​ (€) is represented by a symbol 
-of somewhat dubious design, but it's an important currency and 
-(La)TeX users need to typeset it.  When the currency first appeared, 
-typesetting it was a serious problem for (La)TeX users; things are 
-easier now (most fonts have some way of providing a Euro sign), but 
-this answer provides a summary of methods "just in case". 
- 
-Note that the Commission of the European Community at first deemed 
-that the Euro symbol should always be set in a sans-serif font; 
-fortunately,​ this eccentric ruling has now been rescinded, and one may 
-apply best typesetting efforts to making it appear at least slightly 
-"​respectable"​ (typographically). 
- 
-The TS1-encoded TC fonts provided as part of the EC font 
-distribution provide Euro glyphs. ​ The fonts are called Text Companion 
-(TC) fonts, and offer the same range 
-of faces as do the EC fonts themselves. ​ The 
-[`textcomp`](https://​ctan.org/​pkg/​textcomp) package provides a `\texteuro` command for 
-accessing the symbol, which selects a symbol to match the surrounding 
-text.  The design of the symbol in the TC fonts is not 
-universally loved&​hellip;​ 
-Nevertheless,​ use the TC font version of the symbol if you are 
-producing documents using Knuth'​s Computer Modern Fonts. 
- 
-The each of the `latin9` and `latin10` input encoding 
-definitions for the [`inputenc`](https://​ctan.org/​pkg/​inputenc) package has a euro character 
-defined (character position 164, occupied in other ISO Latin 
-character sets by the "​currency symbol"​ ¤, which 
-ordinary people seldom see except in character-set listings&​hellip;​). 
-The TC encoding file offers the command `\texteuro` for the 
-character; that command is (probably) _only_ available from the 
-[`textcomp`](https://​ctan.org/​pkg/​textcomp) package. 
- 
-Use of the TC encoding character may therefore made via 
-`\texteuro` or via the Latin-9 or Latin-10 character in ordinary 
-text. 
- 
-Note that there is a Microsoft code page position (128), too, and that has 
-been added to [`inputenc`](https://​ctan.org/​pkg/​inputenc) tables for CP1252 and 
-CP1257. ​ (There'​s another position in CP858, which has 
-it in place of "​dotless i" in CP850; the standardisation of 
-these things remains within Microsoft, so one can never tell what will 
-come next&​hellip;​) 
- 
-Outline fonts which contain nothing but Euro symbols are available 
-(free) from 
-[Adobe](ftp://​ftp.adobe.com/​pub/​adobe/​type/​win/​all/​eurofont.exe)&​nbsp;&​mdash;​ 
-the file is packaged as a `Windows` self-extracting 
-executable, but it may be decoded as a `zip` format archive 
-on other operating systems. 
-The [`euro`](https://​ctan.org/​pkg/​euro) bundle contains metrics, `dvips` map 
-files, and macros (for Plain TeX and LaTeX), for using these 
-fonts in documents. ​ LaTeX users will find two packages in the 
-bundle: [`eurosans`](https://​ctan.org/​pkg/​eurosans) only offers the sans-serif version (to 
-conform with the obsolete ruling about sans-serif-only symbols; the 
-package provides the 
-command `\euro`), whereas [`europs`](https://​ctan.org/​pkg/​europs) matches the Euro symbol 
-with the surrounding text (providing the command `\EUR`). ​ To use 
-either package 
-with the `latin9` encoding, you need to define `\texteuro` 
-as an alias for the euro command the package defines. 
- 
-The Adobe fonts are probably the best bet for use in non-Computer 
-Modern environments. ​ They are apparently designed to fit with Adobe 
-Times, Helvetica and Courier, but can probably fit with a wider range 
-of modern fonts. 
- 
-The [`eurofont`](https://​ctan.org/​pkg/​eurofont) package provides a compendious analysis of the 
-"​problem of the euro symbol"​ in its documentation,​ and offers macros 
-for configuring the source of the glyphs to be used; however, it seems 
-rather large for everyday use. 
- 
-The [`euro-ce`](https://​ctan.org/​pkg/​euro-ce) bundle is a rather pleasing MetaFont-only design 
-providing Euro symbols in a number of shapes. ​ The file 
-`euro-ce.tex`,​ in the distribution,​ offers hints as to how a 
-Plain TeX user might make use of the fonts. 
- 
-Euro symbols are found in several other places, which we list here for 
-completeness. 
- 
-The [`marvosym`](https://​ctan.org/​pkg/​marvosym) font contains a Euro symbol (in a number of 
-typographic styles), among many other good things; the font is 
-available in both Adobe Type 1 and TrueType formats. 
- 
-Other MetaFont-based bundles containing Euro symbols are to be found in 
-[`china2e`](https://​ctan.org/​pkg/​china2e) (whose primary aim is Chinese dates and suchlike 
-matters) and the [`eurosym`](https://​ctan.org/​pkg/​eurosym) fonts.
