The official launch of the euro currency earlier this month left many PC users confused as to how to produce the symbol on their systems. Windows 98 has built in support for the euro symbol (although some fonts do not) and users can produce the character by pressing "AltGr+4". Windows NT Service Pack 4 also includes support, but users running previous versions of NT 4 or NT 3.51 will need to install the euro support patch available from the MS Web site. A patch, along with updated fonts, is also available for Windows 95, and support for 3.x will be added soon, although several third-party patches are already available. Keyboards featuring the euro currency symbol are available from Logitech, Microsoft and several other manufacturers.
