Pound sign - Prefixed with

Hi All,

I have just built a content editor using ASP.Net. It works by saving HTML
from a form into a text file. I then include these text files in .shtml
files using SSI directives.

The problem I have is pound signs - If I add one to a page, it is always
preceeded with character, so I end up with: £

Any help/ideas will be appreciated.

The usual way of being sure to produce a pound sign in html is to use
the character entity code  £ but I wouldn't know whether that would
work in the situation you describe.

I've seen this before. It was also as part of an ASP content-management
system. It's caused by the script that recieves the submitted data
misinterpreting the charset of the data.

Solution 1: use £.

Solution 2: get your content management software to do a search and
replace, replacing '£' with '£'.
