# Euro and cent
# [Say: "loadkeys euro" to get Euro and cent with Alt on the positions
#  where many keyboards have E and C.
#  To get it displayed, use a latin0 (i.e., latin9) font.]
#altgr keycode  18 = currency
# Unfortunately, latin2 and latin3 don't know the cent character.
# altgr keycode  46 = cent
