A follow on to Samuel's answer to Jake - the CHR function is really helpful in general - you can also use it for CR/LF (i.e. Carriage Return/Line Feed - basically what you get when you hit ENTER in a text field), where other ways of getting a return aren't as easy. The code for CR/LF is Chr(13) + Chr(10), respectively.
Also, you can easily get the numeric values for your font/font family by looking at CHARMAP in Win32/64 OSes, or by looking up the code table for ASCII.
In short, the £ symbol is CHR(156) - which returns a variant containing a string, or for explicit tex/string type casting, use CHR$(156) - the $ symbol is shorthand for the "string" data type.
Hope this helps!
Hey fellow geeks (and future geeks as well ;) ) - I wanted to give a brief geeky-technical introduction so you would know my history, what I do, and some of the technologies I know.
In the Lotus Notes/Domino arena I have worked for Lotus twice, in Product Development (first time was pre-IBM, second time was post-IBM). I have been a speaker at conferences around the world, written two books and contributed to a third, and used to be a tech editor/writer for a couple of magazines.
Finally, I've worked for huge companies, small pre-IPO startups, and I've had various businesses of my own. I am currently an independent consultant, because quite frankly it is paying the bills right now.
I think it is GREAT that this group was started, and I look forward to both helping others and learning more!
