    Default Pound Symbol () Shortcut

    Heya,

    I have recently moved back to London, and am having troubles remembering to say 'quid' instead of dollar! Just to add to my situtation, is that as I have an Oz configured MBP, there is no Pound () key!

    Does anyone know how I can somehow make a Keyboard shortcut for this, that will work system wide? I know I can create a shortcut in Word, but I want this to extend into Mail, Firefox etc...

    Please help with my currency woes!

    Cheers!

    Another useful one, depending how much you have to do with the continent, is option-shift-2 for €
