    For some reason i cannot see the £ sign even though when i type it i see it it comes out as a weird ? otherwise.

    Thanks

    You've got to be more specific than that I'm afraid.

    What app are you taliking about??

    Is it a certain font or all fonts??

    Please expand.

    It's probably because that symbol isn't in that font.

    The pound sign most likely isn't supported by the font you are using...

    I can see both a £ and a ? in your first post.

    What symbol,
    What app?
    Do other apps do it?
    info...

    in safari follow these steps -

    view->text encoding->UTF-8

    or

    view->text encoding->Western Latin (ISO Latin 1)

    this might cause other rights to get the question mark...so you will havet switch it back to default.

    Are there really a lot of fonts that don't have the £ symbol in them? :eek: I could kind of understand if € was absent, but £ should be in most of them, shouldn't it? :eek: Well, not Symbol or Dingbats, obviously, but.... :D

    You would think so, but I find the number of fonts with limited character support is pretty vast.
