I have the problem, that my emacs ( with

‘¤’… sometimes.

You need to understand that the € is shown in ISO 8859-15 (ISO Latin-9), ISO 8859-16 (ISO Latin-10), and UTF-8 encodings (maybe there are also some more obscure). In the first two cases it has hex A $, dec 164, oct 244. In UTF-8 it is at U+20AC.

Look into the mode-line! In the right encodings it will start with -0:, -r:, or -u:. You can force the right encoding with a first line like

        ;;; -*- mode: Text; coding: iso-8859-16; -*-

or local variables at the file's end like

        %%% Local Variables:
        %%% mode: latex
        %%% coding: utf-8-unix
        %%% TeX-command-default: "XɘLaTeX"
        %%% TeX-master: t
        %%% End:

Would you like to have some ISO 8859 test files?

Mit friedvollen Grüßen
