Huch - I now see the EUR signs in the mail composer as I reply to your mail
I found out, that this is due to the font _size_ I selected.
If I select Courier [Adobe] 10 points, I see the EUR sign.
If I select 9 points, I don't.
Any ideas how this can be?
Hmmm ... I think I do too much playing with the font stuff.
I have again upgraded to Xfree86-4.4 RC2, and have now only the Xfree fonts
installed. Now I don't have the Courier [Urw] font anymore, but only
Courier from Adobe Bitstream or Cronyx.

Yes, sometimes I see the square, but sometimes not (Luxi Sans for example does
not) ... :-(

Yes. Trying iso8859-15 or utf8 in this mail gives me the same result - no EUR
Thinking about the _size_ behaviour described above, it seems that Qt selects
different fonts e.g. when the selected size is not natively (as bitmapped
font) available. Question is: what does it select then, and - is this a Qt
When I run qtconfig and try the same font with different sizes, I also have
this problem - sometimes I see the EUR sometimes not, e.g.:
Courier [Adobe], Normal
6,7,9,11 don't show EUR
8,10,12,14,16,18,20,22,24,26,28,36,48,72 are OK
