Huh? There have been plans for European cooperation and even a joint currency
for a long long time now, and there have never been serious talk about a
global effort in the same direction. So this seems like a very premature
remark at least.

Dutch people happily use the `f' as a currency symbol, which happens
to work fine with really old, old and new keyboards :)

Still, a lot of Europen currencies will be replaces by the Euro in the
next couple of years (final switch will be somewhere in 2002), so it
is really an issue.
