  3. £

    The £ is an ASCII symbol, along with many other symbols http://nslsweb.nsls.bnl.gov/nsls/misc/ascii-symbols.htm . All are
    generated by pressing and holding the ALT with the left hand while a short code, (e.g. 1,5,6) is typed in on the keypad with
    the right hand. The ALT key is then released and *voila* the £ symbol appears ...lol.

    HTH

    No. Only if you have a UK keyboard layout.
