User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows NT 5.0)

Description of problem:
Font latarcyrheb-sun16 is missing euro character. If I set up UTF-8 
(the default) in /etc/sysconfig/i18n, I can't use euro at console 
because it is missing in latarcyrheb-sun16.

(Sorry, if I chose the wrong conponent for this one.)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set up UTF-8 and latarcyrheb-sun16 as sysfont (this is the default)
2. go to console
3. try to write € (euro)

Actual Results:  I got the global currency symbol, not euro.

Expected Results:  € (euro)

Comment 1 Jakub Jelinek 2004-07-06 17:51:27 EDT
It has EURO SIGN character, but not EURO-CURRENCY SIGN:
zcat /lib/kbd/consolefonts/latarcyrheb-sun16.psfu.gz | psfgettable - | grep 20a
0x0ad   U+20ac
zcat /usr/share/i18n/charmaps/UTF-8.gz | grep EURO
<U20A0>     /xe2/x82/xa0 EURO-CURRENCY SIGN
<U20AC>     /xe2/x82/xac EURO SIGN
No idea why Unicode has two of these.
zcat /lib/kbd/consolefonts/latarcyrheb-sun16.psfu.gz > /tmp/latarcyrheb-sun16.psfu; psfgettable /tmp/latarcyrheb-sun16.psfu | sed 's/U+20ac$/& U+20a0/' > /tmp/latarcyrheb-sun16.utbl; psfstriptable /tmp/latarcyrheb-sun16.psfu /tmp/latarcyrheb-sun16.psf; psfaddtable /tmp/latarcyrheb-sun16.psf /tmp/latarcyrheb-sun16.utbl /tmp/latarcyrheb-sun16.psfu; gzip -9 /tmp/latarcyrheb-sun16.psfu
and as root mv -f /lib/kbd/consolefonts/latarcyrheb-sun16{,-old}.psfu.gz
cp {/tmp,/lib/kbd/consolefonts}latarcyrheb-sun16.psfu.gz
Comment 2 Eido Inoue 2004-07-06 17:56:21 EDT
comment 1: the "Euro-currency sign" is not the real euro sign. it is a
historical character and should never be used

The euro is actually in the font... this can be seen by dumping the
font. The problem is that the Euro is mapped to the wrong Unicode code

Comment 4 Miloslav Trmač 2005-02-18 17:30:50 EST
I have sent a patch replacing "currency" by "euro" in most maps upstream;
we will get the change if/when it is accepted there.

Thanks for your report.
