tedious euro-fact

Not getting political, but those with Office 2003 listen up:

1. Start Excel
2. Whack in a Euro sign (Alt-Gr + 4  on a UK keyboard)
3. Set your zoom to 80%
4. Set your zoom to 79%

Oh dear…

    Same thing happens in Office 2007. Just at (curiously) 72% rather than 79%

    Mmm. Now I *could* tell you why it does it.

    It involves some sneaky font substitution on the part of Excel, but, well, you’d all fall asleep if I did.

    Either that or the magic would be vanished away.

    KIDS! THERE IS NO SUCH PERSON AS BILL GATES!

    No no, wait a minute… I mean Santa!

    SANTA! THERE IS NO SUCH PERSON AS BILL GATES!
