You need to use UTF-8 character set to include characters such as £ because it is not a standard ASCII character

We're getting into regular PHP here, nothing to do with PHPExcel.


When you edit your script, your editor should have some options to save the file as UTF-8. Use that option, but make sure you don't save with a BOM marker.
