Some environments, especially old EBCDIC ones put different currency symbols on the same code pointsSo:- I wrote this as one dollar => $1.00This as one pound => $1And this as one euro => €1Lastly one cent => ¢1 I expect you all get that as sent except for perhaps the Euro which didn't exist when Peters VAX was built....... but on an old UK EBCDIC mainframe Dollar becomes Pound and Cent becomes dollar. This was a real pain as a UK user of Bitnet.  Dave > Let me get this straight.  If I stop using VMS MAIL for this list and use one of> these new fangled things instead, I too will be able to make high quality> postings to the list, just like this one???> > Regards,> Peter Coghlan
