Pound sign

Have just noticed that when I come to use the pound sign here on these forum pages, it displays a hash sign. This also happens when composing an email in Hotmail, but not in Outlook Express. No problems either in Word, Excel, or other such programs so keyboard is set up to UK. Any ideas please on a way round this ?

Check in Control Panel, Regional and Language.

Graham is correct. I just replicated your problem by setting language tp US. Set it to UK and your £ sign will return. It will probably tell you to reboot before the change takes effect.

Remember to remove the USA version if that also shows.
Regional & language options.English Uk in both dropdown boxes.Then into Languages.Details,English Uk in the dropdown box and in the large box.In the large box if it also gives you English US Remove the US Version.
