BRUSSELS MUSCLE: It's hard to say what has stirred more controversy: the introduction of the euro in 11 European Union nations this month, or the E.U.-backed cartoon character created to explain the new currency to kids. The website for the strapping, capped crusader shows Captain Euro fighting enemies of progress, like the evil Dr. D. Vider, an art collector and currency speculator. It also has nifty features like a euro converter plus news, events and tourism info from around the E.U.


FREE WHEELING: Ditty Deamer aims to explain China's economic system by focusing on colorful farmers' markets. Her charming website is a history lesson disguised as a photo-heavy virtual walking tour. The presentation is based on the more than 100 trips the San Francisco businesswoman has made to the mainland, and is well worth a visit for unusual details like comparisons of vendors' bicycle-cart designs.
