    Dear reader,

    I am currently working at and I have to make all first Euro signs (€) Red. But it works fine with the: first-letter CSS attribute except in Firefox. Is this because it isn’t a letter or is it a Firefox bug?

    Chrome, Opera, Internet Explorer and Safari are working fine.

    The code is.



    Does anyone know a solution?

    With kind regards,

    It seems that Firefox actually tries to make sure that first-letter is a letter (or number) and not a random character such as &, ©, ®, etc.

    If it’s a bit problem that firefox doesn’t do what you’d like, I’d recommend hard-coding the first characters in a span within the HTML, with PHP if it’s dynamic or with javascript.

    Yeah probably your best bet then to make it cross browser compatible is what jamy_za said:

    <span class=”red”>&#8364;</span>


    <span class=”red”>&euro;</span>

    Thanks for the fast replies. I’ve to write a new ASP code then. Because it is a script that is making the euro sign at all pages.

    Kinds Regards,
