HTML Email pound sign not showing

Hi guys,

I wonder if you can help, a question mark inside a black diamond is appearing in front of the price in a html email which I am sending from my opencart store. It should just be a pound sign. Can anyone tell me what php to program to get rid of this?


  1. Make sure you are using £ instead of actually typing the character in the HTML e-mail
  2. Check the encoding of your HTML e-mail, try setting it to UTF-8
