This must, or this does? Unless it's been updated recently, I'd be
surprised to find that it does.

Yep. If you go to /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/locale/, there's a number of files
with locales listed in them. Add es_ES@euro and es_ES.ISO-8859-15@euro
to them. (The modifications should be obvious.)

Where are you typing this? fixed has a ISO-8859-15 version, that's installed
by default, as well as xfonts-scalable-nonfree having a few ISO-8859-15
fonts. Any TrueType font server will be able to provide ISO-8859-15 fonts,
and you can probably find a few on the web.
