Re: EURO and CENT signs in the console keymaps

All the new UK-layout keyboards I've seen over the past couple of
years have had a Euro symbol marked on the `4' key on the top row (I
reside in Ireland, so maybe only UK-layout keyboards manufactured for
sale here are like that).  The symbol's usually on the
bottom-right-hand corner of the key, with the `4' bottom-left and the
`$' top-left, as usual.  If a user has such a UK keyboard with the
Euro on the `4' key, it'll probably be the first key they try.

Speaking for myself, I don't use special currency symbols, preferring
to write USD, URP, EUR and so forth.  I rarely talk about currencies
in anything but an informal context, though.
