Announcement text given by the contribution's author:
- - ----------------------------------------------------------------------
The `euroitc' package provides a LaTeX interface to the PostScript euro 
font symbols which are available free of charge from the International 
Typeface Corporation in 16 variants (serif and sanserif, in four 
weights, upright and italic).

The package consists of the TeX font metrics, PS font map files, and a 
LaTeX style file. (The fonts themselves have to be downloaded from ITC.)

Loading the package will define a new macro \euro, which typesets the 
euro symbol, corresponding with the currently loaded font family, shape 
and weight.
