Bean counters rejoice - you can enter € in the Linux Notes client

by Volker Weber

It appears that the Notes Client for Linux readme file is broken, and not the product. At least in one respect:

there was an erroneous item from earlier beta builds (which did have problems with the euro) in the release notes which should have been deleted.

Apparently you can enter the Euro sign (€). That will make Ed much happier. ;-)


PEP20.8: Special cases aren't special enough to break the rules.
PEP20.9: Although practicality beats purity.

a) why should the Euro sign be a special case (it's a letter, right?)
b) what would manifest a pragmatic implementation as a special case?

Karsten, I suggest you read the readme.
