    No, it doesn't. I don't know what character set your mail/news reader
    thinks you're using (probably one of the IBM abominations), but it's
    not ISO 8859-1. In ISO 8859-1 you have Ñ (~N) on 0xD1 and ñ (~n) on
    0xF1, but ¤ (0xA4) looks like an o with spikes, and is supposedly an
    "international currency symbol" that noone ever uses.
