There is often, with a very good font, the chance to use the textcomp  
package and address € and dozens other glyphs directly. Try 'texdoc  
tstlmts1' for Latin Modern!

If your TeX installation has fontinst also, then you can run LaTeX on  
ts1.etx. It produces a DVI or PDF output file that describes the TS1  
or 8c or TeX text companion encoding. Having in a LaTeX file

	\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
	\usepackage{textcomp}
	\usepackage[latin9]{inputenc}	% knows €, latin1 does not!

you can simply type € in the text to get it. If you want a particular  
shape to appear, then use \textrm{€} or \textsf{€} or \texttt{€}!
