does java Locale.getDefault() work for you ?


import java.util.*;
import java.text.NumberFormat;

class testPrint{
public static void main(String args[]){
double value = 5.43;
Locale defaultLocale = Locale.getDefault();
NumberFormat nf = NumberFormat.getCurrencyInstance(defaultLocale);
String formattedValue = nf.format(value);
i live in GB and my PC is configured correctly for location etc. Yet when i run this script i get a 'u' with an accent. Would anyone mind running it for me and telling me if it works for their locale ? also is there an easier way to display a GB pound sign.
