Jade knows which character to output for an SDATA entity based on the
entity name. It knows about a fair number of "standard" SDATA entities but
also recognizes entities named like U-xxxx (where xxxx are four hex
digits). In order to get the euro symbol, therefore, I believe you need to
add an SDATA entity to your DTD for it, e.g.,

<!ENTITY euro "&U-20AC">
<!ENTITY U-20AC SDATA "[euro  ]">

The font you are using must, of course, have the euro symbol in it.
