Nope, if you see this error message, then the local name is not
supported by the system, and you don't need to check that.

It's not valid anyway. Standard names are of the form
language[_region[@charset]], and "euro" isn't a valid charset name. I'm
guessing they meant ISO-8859-15, which is ISO-8859-1 plus the euro sign
and a few other tweaks. Or maybe they used a nonstandard encoding, who
knows...
