Since Kermit is not financial software, it does not deal with currency per se. However, as communications software, it must be concerned with transfer and display of characters between one computer and another, usually requiring translation between one character set and another.
For communications software to be "Euro compliant", it must support the character sets that contain the Euro character, and it must be able to correctly translate among them.
The following Table lists character sets that contain the Euro symbol and shows which Kermit programs support these character sets. Kermit programs not shown in the table have no explicit Euro support.

The ability to display the Euro symbol depends on its presence in the font used by your display device. You will probably require updated fonts from your vendor, such as:
For two Euro-compliant Kermit programs to transfer a file coded in a character set that contains the Euro symbol, they should use Latin-9, UTF-8, or UCS-2 as the transfer character set.
