British Pound (£) Display?


I've got a site I'm working on that uses text drawn from a MYSQL database.

When a user enters text that includes the British pound symbol '£', it is displayed as a 'ᆪ'

My char set is:

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">

What am I doing wrong????

Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately, it is user generated content that is being stored in the database.
