I have an Acer Aspire laptop - Athlon 1500 256 - Running Windows XP Home. When using Wordpad the £ sign is reproduced as a hash sign. No doubt there is an easy solution, but I'm lost!

Go into control panel and then keyboard and maje sure the language is set to English (British)

It would seem that you are using an odd font.

Try setting the font to Ariel or Times and see how you get on.

Yes I was set up for U.S. English and yes I was using a strange font - now resolved - Thanks for your prompt response - Dyffryn
