Ligne 1: Ligne 1:
-====== Typesetting the Euro sign ====== 
- 
- 
-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-fortunately,​ this eccentric ruling has now been rescinded, and one may 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 
-[[ctanpkg>​textcomp|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... 
-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 [[ctanpkg>​inputenc|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...). 
-The TC encoding file offers the command ''​\texteuro''​ for the 
-character; that command is (probably) //only// available from the 
-[[ctanpkg>​textcomp|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 [[ctanpkg>​inputenc|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...) 
- 
-Outline fonts which contain nothing but Euro symbols are available 
-(free) from 
-[[ftp://​ftp.adobe.com/​pub/​adobe/​type/​win/​all/​eurofont.exe|Adobe]] --- 
-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 [[ctanpkg>​euro|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: [[ctanpkg>​eurosans|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 [[ctanpkg>​europs|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 [[ctanpkg>​eurofont|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 [[ctanpkg>​euro-ce|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 [[ctanpkg>​marvosym|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 
-[[ctanpkg>​china2e|china2e]] (whose primary aim is Chinese dates and suchlike 
-matters) and the [[ctanpkg>​eurosym|eurosym]] fonts.
