Hi Guys, hopefully a quick and easy one...

tempCell.Text = tempPrice.PriceAmount.ToString( "C" );

On my local machine this prints with £ signs (£53.00), on my hosting account I get $ signs ($53.00)...

I assume my host's server is set to be american-english or something... anyway I can force a pound sign when formatting my string?
