Characters not displaying correctly

Characters not displaying correctly

I have manually built a front end of a website, and then used data assist to build the admin area of the site.

In the insert and update pages, I can type the characters as required (eg: £), then click insert, and on the data assist detail page the contents display fine, but when I display them on the public side of the site, the pound symbol changes to A£ where the 'A' has a line above it.

What's going on?

can you post a link where I could see the problem to investigate. It may be that the pages character set is not properly set:
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
