    So I've just gotten my new late 2008 MBP. It has been purchased in Belgium but with an international english keyboard. I've set the keyboard to British English because it's the only one that will let me use the "2" button to make a "€" using the option button at the same time. This has caused one tiny problem, my "3" button now writes "£" when using shift when it should in fact write "#" according to my keyboard layout.

    Can anyone help me??

    Set it to a US keyboard. That way shift 3 is #.

    To get €, use shift opt 2.
    To get £, use opt 3.

    You can use Keyboard Viewer (also under international) to see what keys you need to press to get most characters. You can even get the accents ´,^, ¨,~, µ etc just using opt combinations.

    Thanks for the help. I'd already done this, was just hoping there was a perfect matching keyboard profile for the one I have.
    Anyways, no big issue for me;)
