some of my validation error messages contain a pound sign (the British currency, not #) however, this get's shown as a question mark in the view. i can get round it by using the html reference (£) instead of the literal character, but it seems a little counter-intuitive to handle this in the model... isn't it view related? any suggestions? I'm developing on webrick

You should set the character encoding in the page and response headers to, er, some charset that contains the pound sign (I always set them to utf8, which simplifies matters), so that the browser is sure to use the correct charset when decoding the page. Note that your source files that contain non-ASCII characters need to be saved using the same charset. Tim
