Why does the Euro symbol display as a square?

I have a Web server using IIS 5 and Windows 2000 Server which displays the Euro symbol as a square. What causes this?

It's either the browser's fault or the HTML's fault because the browser's character set doesn't support that character. Try specifying a different font. Worst case, insert the symbol as a .gif file.
