MS Word and english pound symbol help

Anyone out there know how to get the English pound symbol to show up in MS Word. I'm using Word 2k and have the basic fonts but can't seem to find it anywhere. I tried help but that is just useless. Hope some one out there has had to type that symbol at least once.

I don't know if there's a shorter way, but you should be able to use character map. Go to Start -> Programs -> Accessories -> Character Map. Pick your font, then the pound symbol and copy and paste it into your Word document. That's how I got this one: .

Yeah, well, OK, there's that too. But are you really going to trust someone named . to know how to insert symbols in documents?
