PHP pound sterling problem

Hi folks

I have an application written in PHP using Postgresql as the back end.

If I have a text box on a form and in it type a value including a pound sign 
everything works fine.  It is written to the database correctly, and then 
read back and shown correctly on-screen.

However, in my code to generate a purchase order I embed the pound sign in a 
string to be displayed and also to be used to update the database.  In both 
cases the pound sign is replaced by a non-standard character.

I assume this is because of a character encoding issue. Can someone tell me 
what I need to change and to what.
