Extra letter with £ sign

I have just downloaded the 2.03 beta. Everything seems fine, except when I use a £ sign. It comes out like this £. It wouldn't be a problem, except I run an online newspaper in Scotland which has a vacancies section. Naturally, the £ sign is used regularly. Can anyone help?

Does the final, published page have a UTF-8 tag in the <head>?

This would look like this:

    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">

Thanks, I've tried that and it works. Thanks very much.
