    Default Problem using the pound sterling sign ()

    I'm a fairly new user of java and am hitting trouble trying to get the sign to work in my program.

    I'm only trying to out put it to the user:

    Java Code:
    System.out.println("To travel from Leicester to Loughborough it will cost 2.50");
    However when I run the program the sign is being shown as a instead.


    To travel from Leicester to Loughborough it will cost 2.50
    How can I get it to show the sign in the program?

    Works for me in eclipse, but not from the command prompt.

    Also, using the following does the same thing:
    System.out.println("To travel from Leicester to Loughborough it will cost \u00A3 2.50");

    This is a common problem. Here's a solution I found: I18N: Unicode at the Windows command prompt (C++; .Net; Java)
