Dear all,

I have moved to the above distributions. I am currently working on a  
file that gave no problems under my former TeX installation via  
Gerben Wierda's installer. But under the recent packages from Dick  
Koch's site — gwTeX, TeXLiveMTS-2007, TeXLive-2007 the TeX run aborts  
when it encounters the Euro symbol. However if I switch back to  
gwTeX-2003-2005 that I had been formerly using the file compiles  
fine. Below are bits  from my input file and the Console read-out. I  
would be most grateful if anyone could advise me.
