keyboard encoding, sorry for this.

Thank you very much for your explanation.

If I look at the .eps file after creating the graph with -title("price 
in `=char(0128)'")-, I can see that it has again been translated to 
(price in \200).

Interestingly, using the Copyright symbol, `=char(0169)' has been 
translated to \251 in the .eps file.

I think I'll just use the word "Euros" rather than the Euro symbol

Thanks again,
Antoine
