Description of problem:
When I press Shift+3 in gnome-terminal, a UK Pound sign is not shown.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Shift+3 in gnome-terminal
Here's the text pasted from the screenshot. Note the odd character does paste as
a pound sign, so gnome-terminal is not displaying it correctly.
[root@localhost root]# 1 ! 2 " 3 ï¿½ 4 $ 5 %

Your font probably doesn't have pound sign, and vte doesn't do fontsetting yet
(fallback fonts for chars not present in current font)
Is this fixed in Fedora Core 1?
Yes, it should be. Fontsetting was implemented in an earlier 0.11
version than was included in FC1, so it's in there. One of the
documentation files (/usr/share/doc/vte-0.11.10/iso2022.txt) can be
catted to demonstrate this. Closing. Thanks!
