E0830: Gweb euro displayed as international currency

Product: Gweb
Platform: All
Status: Fixed for 6.0.3 and 6.1
Last updated: 2002-09-17 16:26:51

Bull, in common with most of the market, has adopted the
convention that hex A4, the international currency sign in ISO
8859-1 (Latin 1), will be interpreted as the euro, which is hex
A4 in ISO-8859-15 (Latin 9). Correspondingly hex 9F in EBCDIC
(Bull PLW version of EBCDIC), the international currency sign in
EBCDIC, is also interpreted as the euro.

The G&R product set follows this convention. Glink was corrected
some time ago so that hex A4 is mapped to the Windows character
for euro for purposes of display on the screen or Windows
printing. The Windows character is hex 80 in most code pages
(hex 88 in Cyrillic).

Gweb did not make a corresponding conversion when delivering hex
A4 to the browsers for display. This resulted in the browsers
displaying the international currency sign. This is now
