I am trying to get a handle on the last sentence.  It seems to be 
casting a rather negative light on Euro remediation.  However (using 
remediated dates) 1999 ( Euro phase 1) comes before 2000.  Yes, I know 
Y2K issues have impacted some systems for some time now but for european 
and multi-national companies tomorrow is here for the Euro.
