Keymap in xterm is wrong


I've got a problem in that the keymap in xterm's seems to be wrong. When I try to type a @ it produces a different symbol.

I've put the following lines in /etc/X11/xorg.conf, but it doesnt seem to work.

Option "XkbModel" "pc105"
Option "XkbLayout" "gb"
This has happened before, but I cant remember how to fix it.
