Displaying a £ sign instead of a $ sign

What is the best (and if possible, the easiest ) way to get Visual Interdev 6 to display a £ sign without having to change the code of my website?  

The code I'm using is <%=formatcurrency(cTotal)%>, which is displaying it as $2.00 for example, I want it to display it as £2.00.  

I've adjusted the Regional Settings in the Control Panel of Windows 2000 Professional, so it is set to English - United Kingdom, but I'm not sure if there is anything else I can do.

Thanks in advance for your assistance.

Hi,

This example should help:

"default.asp"

<%@ Language=VBScript %>
<HTML>
<HEAD>
<META NAME="GENERATOR" Content="Microsoft Visual Studio 6.0">
</HEAD>
<BODY>
<%
original = setLocale("en-gb")
%>
<P><% =formatcurrency("200",2) %></P>

</BODY>
</HTML>


The important thing is to set ORIGINAL to the desired country code!

Best regards, Raisor
