If I recall correctly, underscore is a problem in EBCDIC (do you recall better, Bill?). Also, it's the character that Windoze substitutes for internal periods, so it's probably an unfortunate choice.
The currency symbol will render differently on different character sets, but a given user should always see it the same way, and all keyboards do have the symbol (as far as I know).

CM *is* a content distribution system....
