Thank you so much for your comments, I shall respond to them later on  
today; just I have to pop out very soon for a few hours.

I have been getting on really well with LaTeX and really enjoying it  
bar one thing that has come to niggle me:

The £ sign.

I am using the Adobe Garamond Pro font (using other ones like Utopia  
or Computer-Modern) do not exhibit this problem.  If I have a line of  
text like:

'£359.00 including VAT'

it comes out as:

'359.00 including VAT'

So by using:

'\textsterling 359.00 including VAT'

gives me:

$359 including VAT

with a slanted dollar sign.  I have tried searching google but cannot  
find any answers -- is there something I am doing wrong?  This only  
seems to occur with the fonts I have installed :( (Optima and Adobe  
Garamond Pro) -- the other seem fine.

Any ideas?
