Get a load of other characters when i use £ sign. HELP!!!

Postby benjihubbs » Thu Dec 16, 2010 1:59 am

Hi,

When i use the £ (pound) sign, i get a load of other random characters like this: Ã���Ã��Ã�£10.00 in front of it and i cant see anything wrong with any of it.

Any ideas??

Thanks

I commonly see that problem with implementations using the wrong settings when it comes to the extra symbols. You probably need to install a different language pack so that it can accommodate all the other symbols. It would be annoying to see a string of characters every time you use a symbol on even of of your words.

Though it would be really easy to find a solution to that so you just have to look at the proper sources.
