€ symbol rendering as â‚¬2

Use an UTF-8 encoding type on your file and make sure you add a content-type meta tag to your page:
<META HTTP-EQUIV="Content-Type" CONTENT="text/html; charset=UTF-8">
Hope this helps !
Set the charset in the headers or a <META> element to UTF-8 so that it isn't processed as CP1250.
