Strange problem with the pound sign (?) on my PC.when looking at prices on web sites the letter J is there in place of ? also when typing as now, I'm seeing "J" instead of "?" (pound), hope this makes sense, running windows 98se, have tried restoring a backup from August but the problem is still there, do these pound signs come out correctly to you,??????????, on my screen they are all capital J's ...alB
