EURO-Symbol in GNU Emacs

Hi there,

I am really stuck getting the EURO-Symbol shown and written in Emacs.

My Emacs-version is: GNU Emac 21.3.1 (i386-mingw-nt5.1.2600) on a MS Windows XP (SP2) system (bad habbit, I know ;-) )

For displaying the symbol, I first tried using the ms-latn-ex.el package by this commands .emacs:
a) (autoload 'ms-latn-ex "latin-extra") and
b) (set-face-font 'default '"latin-extra")

My second try was to use the following (also in .emacs):
(set-w32-system-coding-system 'iso-8859-15)

Both approaches ran without errors when emacs starts.
Even so, what I am shown in emacs is: \200 for the EURO-Symbol inserted by an regular text-editor.

Secondly I tryd something to write the EURO-Symbol by following function:
(defun insert-euro ()
  "insert the euro sign"
  (interactive "*")
  (insert (string (make-char 'latin-iso8859-15 164))))

It actually shows me an EURO-Symbol, but a regular text-editor is showing me the following: Ž¤

Please help me, I really spend hours an that problem and did'nt fix anything.

Thanks so much in advance,
