Euro symbol showing as serif font in IE7 when using bold Arial RRS feed

  • 问题

  • It appears that IE 7 will completely ignore the font declaration for the Euro symbol if it is bold Arial. In fact, it shows as a serif font instead of a sans-serif font.

    Take this quick test harness:

    Code Snippet

    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN" "">
    <html lang="en">
        <title>Euro Test</title>
        <style type="text/css">
            p {
                font-family: Arial, sans-serif;
                font-size: 300%;

        <p>That will be &euro;100.</p>
        <p><b>That will be &euro;100.</b></p>

    In any other browser (IE 6, Fx, Safari, etc), all the text is in Arial (yes - the font is installed). However, in IE 7 only, the bold Euro symbol is displaying in a sans-serif font.

    I cannot find any reference to this bug online, so was wondering if this was a known issue.

    If it is known, can anyone point me to any references? If it's not known, can anyone point me to where I should submit a bug report?
