That wasn't neccesary, the default fonts supported the Euro sign. All 
I had to do was to encode my unicode strings to cp1252 before filling 
the paragraph. My XML file was encoded with iso8859-15 and it has a 
different 'code' for the euro sign as cp1252 ... that was the reason 
it wasn't showing.
