Thanks you for your report.

In general, reports about Emacs 23 should go to emacs-devel@gnu.org or
to emacs-pretest-bug@gnu.org.  Also, Emacs 23 is very early into its
development, so grave bugs should still be expected in that version.

What does Emacs say if you go to that \200 and press "C-u C-x ="?
(#x80 is the code of Euro in the Windows encoding.)

Try playing with the variable w32-recognize-altgr.

What keyboard do you use in Windows? what do you see in Control Panel
-> Regional and Language Options -> Languages -> Details?  And what
version of Windows is that?

Please describe the details: what is displayed in this case?
