Your euro opinions count

Reading, England - 19 February 2001

Conor Mangat is researching attitudes towards the euro currency symbol. If you have an opinion be sure to fill out his online survey before the end of the month.

Do you have an opinion on the typographic representation of the euro?

If so, you are invited to participate in an online survey on the subject, which is part of a dissertation study that I am carrying out at The University of Reading in England.

When it was first announced, the euro symbol drew much informal comment, but little serious formal study. It has since slipped quietly into everyday usage with little further mention, and so it seems appropriate to gauge opinion once again - before it becomes just another topic for design history classes.

The survey (which is only seven questions) should take no more than a few minutes to complete, and will remain online for the next month or so, depending on the level of response. Please also encourage your colleagues and friends to take part, by pointing them to:

Your responses will not be used for purposes other than this study, though you should be aware that completion of the survey indicates your permission to be quoted/referenced in any subsequent project documentation.

Many thanks in advance for your time and cooperation (and apologies if you receive this message more than once).

- Conor Mangat
