Hi, I have a Java app running on Tomcat 4.x. I'm displaying a currency value in a JSP, and this string value comes from the following call:
NumberFormat.getCurrencyInstance().format( value );
This finds its way into a bean, and that bean is displayed on the JSP. Easy! On Windows, I get the sterling pound symbol. On Solaris, I get a strange little box with a spike in each corner (which is certainly no currency symbol I'm aware of!!).
Is there something I need to set in Tomcat to recognise pound symbols?
