The € symbol is based on a Greek letter epsilon (so), which shows stability with the initial letter in the word ‘Europe’ and two parallel lines. The euro’s ISO code is EUR. This is used without using the sign when talking to euro quantities.
The euro sign is the currency symbol representing the euro, the Eurozone’s official currency, and several other nations (such as Kosovo and Montenegro). On 12 December 1996, the European Commission revealed the design to the public. It comprises a stylized letter E (or epsilon), which is crossed in place of one by two lines. The sign is immediately before the value in English (e.g. € 10); the value is typically followed in most other English words but not necessarily by intermediate spacing (e.g. 10 € or 10€).
Use On Computers And Mobile Phones
It depends on the production system and country traditions that the euro symbol is created using a computer. At first, several mobile phone providers offered a temporary software update to replace the less common Japanese Yen with the European Sign for their unique SMS Character Set. Both currency signs will follow on mobile phones.
The euro will be represented in the Unicode set of character EURO SIGN and the U+20AC (decimal 8364) code position, as well as in updated Latin-set traditional code. You may also use the € entity in HTML.
Use of Euro sign
The sign’s position changes. The style employed in their old currency has been retained usually by countries. The symbol for the euro is inserted in the same location (eg € 3,50), in those nations where the prior norm was to insert the currency indicator before the figure. The Euro Sign is again put in that relative position in those nations where the amount precedes the central bank sign.
In its organizational stylebook (for its own employees) the Commission contains a rule on the usage of the euro symbol, which should be put before the amount, but in most other languages, without even any space in English.
The symbol for the euro, like with the dollar sign ($) and also the pound sign (£), is put unpaced, as used in publications like Credit Suisse and the Economist in English-speaking newspapers and magazines. The plural is used for two or more units, with the euro cents (in Englisch) divided by a point and not a comma When written down (e.g., 1.50 euro, 14 euros).
