The glyph is the shape, what you type is the character (an encoding  
is always on characters -- otherwise every font would have its own  
and Unicode or T1 could not exist). Typing one character you can get  
regular, bold, small caps, or old-fashioned glyphs, etc.

textcomp uses glyphs from the same font as the text is set (i.e.  
serif in roman, sans serif in sf, and monospaced in tt), eurosym uses  
the € glyphs from Adobe's free Euro Symbol fonts. When typing € (or  
\texteuro) of course the glyph is taken from the active font. The  
Adobe variants are accessed via \euro.
