Does anybody know the where the location of this $ is?

Ok i have found where the $ is coming from - see 1st attachment line 72
however if i replace the $ with a £ then it cannot find the symbol - see 2nd attachment.
Ive tried most symbols and they display fine and have also tried £ but that just displays as &pound

any ideas on why the £ wont display?

did you try the character ref as well - £ (make sure you have a semi colon)

Yes I have tried it but that just displays as £
For now I shall just have no symbol there as it does have GBP

For reference it is in ecommerce/code/forms/OrderForm.php line 72
