euro : Java Glossary

The CurrCon Java Applet displays prices on this web page converted with today’s exchange rates into your local international currency, e.g. Euros, US dollars, Canadian dollars, British Pounds, Indian Rupees… CurrCon requires an up-to-date browser and Java version 1.8, preferably 1.8.0_131. If you can’t see the prices in your local currency, Troubleshoot. Use Firefox for best results.

In Java source code, the euro currency symbol, the one that looks like a rounded E, is written as \u20AC, (char)0x20ac or (char)8364.

The euro has recently been given the html code ( €).

If you can guarantee the reader is using the Latin-1 encoded character set, you can get the euro in HTML (Hypertext Markup Language) ( €).

Fifteen countries both use and mint Euro currency: Austria (at), Belgium (be), Cyprus (cy), Finland (fi), France (fr), Germany (de), Greece (gr), Ireland (ie), Italy (it), Luxembourg (lu), Malta (mt), Netherlands (nl), Portugal (pt), Slovenia (si), Spain (es). Austria, Belgium, Cyprus, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Portugal, Slovenia and Spain.

The new members that joined on 2004-05-01 : Poland (pl), Hungary (hu), the Czech republic (cz), Slovakia (sk), Latvia (lv), Lithuania (lt) and Estonia (ee) do not yet use the euro, but are committed to do so in the future.

Note that the following countries do not officially use the euro: Denmark (dk), Great Britain (uk), Norway (no), Sweden(se), Switzerland (ch), even though Demnark, Great Britain and Sweden are members of the EU. In Britain, most stores take either pounds or Euros. I presume euros would also be accepted in tourist areas of the other EU countries as well.
