When you look at the enclosed figure, you can see, that currency is wrong in the bottom-right corner of the Finnish Locale settings. Previously encoding ISO-8859-1 was used as a default encoding in Finland and in many other Western European countries. But when currency changed from franc, mark etc. to euro, this all changed. In Finland this change happened at the beginning of year 2002. ISO-8859-15 was selected as default encoding, because it is supporting Euro sign and ISO-8859-1 is not supporting it.
In enclosing figure it looks like Haiku is trying to show Euro sign using ISO-8859-1 encoding. Therefore, I would like that Haiku should support ISO-9958-15 (or Latin-9, as it is also called) as well.
I have enclosed here a Latin-9 patch for STXTTranslator (but I'm not sure, if this patch is correct). I hope, this should be the first step to right direction.
