I managed to get TeX to use my Bembo postscript fonts some time ago,  
having found afm/and lwfn files and constructed the various bits TeX  

However the following file


\section{Character problems with Bembo font}
\pounds 5 should be 5 pounds sterling; actually it's dollars

produces the following error:
This is pdfTeX, Version 3.14159-1.00b-pretest-20020211 (Web2C 7.3.7x)

and i get a dollar sign instead of a pound sign.

Can anyone tell me what I need to do? Is it a mapping problem, or a  
missing glyph problem, or a telling TeX something problem?

Thanks for any enlightenment


(PS: It might at least convert the amount as it converts the currency!!)
