    Can't get Euro symbol to work

    Highland Matt D

      I'd like to use the Euro symbol in my application.  I can type it into the mxml source file (Option + Shift + 2 on OS X), but in the application it doesn't show up and if I try to type it in a text field in the app, using the same key combo, nothing happens.  The font I'm currently using is Lucida Grande.  I've also tried Courier New as the font and it doesn't work either.  I've tried both of these fonts in other applications and the Euro symbol shows up just fine in them.

       

      Neither of these fonts is embedded in my app, I'm just using the font on the system.  Below is the css specifying the font for my app.  I've seen other articles referencing use of the Euro symbol so there must be something I'm doing wrong.  Any ideas as to why the Euro symbol wouldn't work for me?

       

      @font-face {
          src:local("Lucida Grande");
          fontFamily: myFontFamily;
          fontStyle: normal;
          fontWeight: normal;
      }
      @font-face {
          src:local("Lucida Grande");
          fontFamily: myFontFamily;
          fontStyle: normal;
          fontWeight: bold;
      }

       

      global
      {
          fontFamily:myFontFamily;
      }
