is that last char before the period supposed to be the euro (¤)? i see
something that looks like a reversed D with three pixels on the right side
- one at top, one halfway down and one at the bottom. in fact i see that
exact symbol if i press AltGr-4. xmodmap says it's onequarter - keysym
0xbc (which means the font i'm using on my gnome term has an odd glyph
for that symbol). when i press AltGr-e i get currency - keysym 0xa4.
$ xmodmap -pk | egrep '\((e|4)\)'
13 0x0034 (4) 0x0024 (dollar) 0x00bc (onequarter) 0x0024 (dollar)
26 0x0065 (e) 0x0045 (E) 0x00a4 (currency)
for future reference everyone i've sent a euro sign to who has a euro
update to their os (windows, mac, linux) has seen the correct character

all the apps i use map AltGr-e to the euro.
