Display Euro in Confluence

In Europe, we use the Euro. On our keyboard this is represented next to the 5. I type the Euro symbol (€) by typing Alt Gr -5 (ALT Gr is the Alt key on the right of the space bar).

In Confluence, ALT GR-5, immediately equates to H5, rather than the € symbol. In all applications I know except Confluence, ALT GR-5 is always interpreted as Euro symbol rather than ALT-5.

Is it possible to configure Confluence so that ALT GR-5 becomes the € symbol rather than the Header 5?

The best thing would be, that you report your locale (including keyboard layout), operating system and browser in a new issue on https://jira.atlassian.com/

For instance: i'm from germany and use a mac with german keyboard layout. I can type the € just by hitting [alt] + E without activating something else in confluence.

What version of confluence do you use? I had some problems with locale settings in confluence 3.5.2., which were fixed in 3.5.6.
