    it would be a bit silly if we didn't have £ on our keyboards, wouldn't it?

    # and £ are on the same key but they are not the same thing.

    Here's some useless trivia for you,

    Qwerty is called so as in the old typewriter days you can not only spell 'typewriter' using only the first (upper) line of the keyboard, but it would allow the user to type at an optimum speed without keys jamming whilst typing. i assume Qwertz is so because the z must be used either it or the y is used more frequently in the countries where those keyboards are supplied.
    all i know is my old swiss keyboard used to play havoc with touchtyping ;)

    Everyday is a 'school day' ;)

    The DVORAK keyboard is arguably a faster way of typing, however QWERTY has become such a standard it would be silly to change all keyboards now.
