I would like to be able to easily type in the UK pound sign, especcially on
the net. Does anyone no how I can do this? I have managed to create a
shortcut in Word so that i can use it there, but I really want to be able to
type it, when I'm on forums or Ebay. I'm using IE6, had a bit of look around
and cant work out how.
many thanx for your help

On your keyboard hold Alt and while typing 0163 on your number pad. This
will bring you the G symbol. Right away without going back and forth with
your Word etc.

Might be worth switching to a uk keyboard layout

Control Panel > Regional & Language Options > Languages tab > Details

Then it's just "shift 3"

There's more than one way to do this, but I use a little freeware
background program called AllChars. This lets me (in all
applications) type many common special characters (many of these
are used in other languages) by pressing the ctrl key followed by
a two character mnemonic combination.
For example, for , the two charcters are L and -. For the two
characters are ~ and n. For it's c and , For it's u and "

In Romans 1 there are qualities of Unregenerate man listed
which describe him in the last days.
Is your quality found on this list??

It's *much* easier than using character map.
