What does "contain the euro symbol" means? Which coding?

If I start Emacs with

  emacs -q -fn "-outline-Courier
New-normal-normal-normal-mono-13-*-*-*-c-*-iso8859-1" euro.txt

"normal" ASCII chars are shown with Courier New. The euro sign is
shown with Arial Unicode MS:

        character: € (8364, #o20254, #x20ac)
preferred charset: windows-1252 (WINDOWS-1252 (Latin I))
       code point: 0x80
           syntax: _    which means: symbol
         category: c:Chinese h:Korean j:Japanese
      buffer code: #xE2 #x82 #xAC
        file code: #x80 (encoded by coding system windows-1252-dos)
          display: by this font (glyph code)
    uniscribe:-outline-Arial Unicode
MS-normal-normal-normal-sans-13-*-*-*-p-*-gb2312.1980*-* (#xD10)

Character code properties: customize what to show
  name: EURO SIGN
  general-category: Sc (Symbol, Currency)

There are text properties here:
  charset              windows-1252
