How do I set the local currency sign?

When I execute the following program in Sun Solaris with Java SDK 1.1.7 I am getting
en_US, $1,000.00 but with SDK 1.2.2 I am not getting the $ sign? (instead of dollar sign it is printing some junk character).

We are using IBM Websphere 3.5 on Solaris.
Can some one help me on this?
Thanks in advance,

Hi - I get the $ on Linux with JDK 1.3.1, and I think this is correct output.
I can only guess there is a mild bug in your SDK.
I'm sure you have the sources for it. Take a look at them.

The junk character's probably the currency sign - if this HTML goes thro u should see it:
Dunno why you're not getting the dollar though.

I have seen things you people would not believe, attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion, c-beams sparkling in the dark near the Tennhauser Gate. All these moments will be lost in time, like tears in the rain.
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
