Hi all,

I'm trying to display some monetary value using the code below,

NumberFormat.getCurrencyInstance(Locale.ENGLISH).format(value);

When executed, the code correctly formats the value but it displays some funny star symbol followed by the formatted value.

Does anyone know why this is and how I could replace the funny star symbol with a currency symbol (�)?

Try Locale.UK - Locale.ENGLISH is just "en", and I have no idea what it thinks it's mapping currency to.
