Internet Banking - ? Mark in amount fields

  [DELETED] 12:20 19 Dec 2003

Whatever site I visit that has sterling amount fields a ? precedes the amount. Never really bothered about it until today when I tried to transfer some money via my Internet Bank. When I enter the amount - 500.00 it changes to ?500.00 and I get a response of inavlid amount field. Same happens if I delete the ? and try again.
Strange one. Any ideas please?

if you go into regional settings, customize and then the currency tab, does it show the £ sign?

Yes it does.

Just checked the 'advanced' tab in Regional and Language Options. Changed 'Language for non-Unicode programs' from English (American) to English (United Kingdom), restarted PC and all now OK.
Thanks MadPentium
