Christine did me the favor to ask the folks at the European Central
Bank. :-) Benoit Gindele, currently responsible for the information
that is published at their WWW site, told her:

    EUR is the official _abbreviation_. There exists an official euro
    currency sign as well. This is the same as the logo. In printed
    matter, it is to be used without the specific colors.

If he comes around, an appropriate notice will be posted on the ECB
WWW site. When I see him the next time, I'll ask him what's up with
non-printed matter, e.g., WWW sites... :-)


PS: Partly information from the decision phase is in
http://www.ecb.int/emi/press/press02.htm . I could also grep over the
documents to find the one that notifies about the decision if that's
really desired. ;-)
