Euro howto and cent sign


I just went through a brieg email correspondence about the euro sign with one 
of the KDE people and then with the local Euro-infodesk in Finland.

It turned out that there is no character for the euro cent. Thus, you have to 
write 0,20€ instead of 20¢ (<-WRONG!!)!

The Debian euro howto discusses mapping the cent character to the keyboard 
and actually, the current 'unstable' seemingly has it also mapped to 

To prevent confusion and errorneous usage of the cent sign with euro, perhaps 
mentions of the cent sign should be removed (or changed to point out that 
there isn't one)?
