rails cant display £

the £ displays as ablack diamond and white question mark.

Whats that all about?

The pound sign should be the character entity: £

Various page encodings will probably mess with it in different ways
otherwise.

Try put an ‘H’ when you output ruby code, eg:

<%=h @product.price_prefix %> <%=h sprintf("%0.2f",@product.price)%>

<%=h CONTENT %>

will escape things for you.
