Hi there, We have developed an ASP application which quite often will display a currency on screen. In order to do this we use the formatCurrency function in VBScript, which about 95% of the time is working fine. The problem is that once in a while when you open a page every £ sign is preceded by a "Ã" character. I have been searching for the reason for this for some time now and my forehead is beginning to become positively red from the brick wall I have been hitting it against. Any help greatly appreciated, as you can imagine the client isn't a big fan of this feature. Thanks in advance, Bob ************************************ Bob Thomson nkd http://www.nkd-webmedia.co.uk http://www.soqcentral.com 0131 220 8252 (Switchboard) 0131 472 4812 (DDI extension) 0131 220 8352 (Fax) 0785 575 9009 (Mobile) One St. Colme Street Edinburgh EH3 6AA This email may contain confidential information intended solely for use by the addressee.
