Using Unicode Characters in Expressions

You can use Unicode syntax to write non-Latin-based characters (such as Greek, Cyrillic, and Asian characters). For these characters, specify the Unicode code in the expression that identifies the field text. For example, to print the Euro symbol, use the Unicode \u20ac character escape. The expression \u20ac is not simple text; it is a Java expression that identifies a string containing the € character.

If you use this character in a static text element, “\u20ac” will appear. The value of a static field is not interpreted as a Java expression.
