£ showing as a square


I have prices on my site in ?? and it shows up as a square(not square with red x)

Didn’t think it would copy and paste but this is what is happening ???0.99, what would cause this?


I suspect is has something to do with the individual browsers and “Which” character set they are using. I suspect that it’s being viewed with the basic (128) Ascii set as opposed to the extended set. The ?? is character 156 of the extended set and not available in the Basic set, so most programs that don’t recognize it would put just a square or some other symbol.

If using it in html, try using the £ notation where ever you need the pound sign.
