Hello Jez, Thanks for your reply. Unfortunately this and many variations don't allow me to use the £ (UK pound) character. I've spent some more time searching around and hav'nt found a working solution, yet.
Of those UK people with a working £ character, what rc.conf* settings do you use? Many thanks.
