I have a website that sends newsletters through an online system, when I preview the newsletters, they look fine,, but when I send them, they have funny characters, ie £10  instead of £
I know I could use £  but this is not a possibility for the users of the system who have no knowledge of html.
any ideas?

Also, I am told I could change the format from western to UTF,, where is this actually done?

UTF means that your charset will include more characters than the standard ones.
The above should work. Just make sure you also remove any other encoding that may be set.
