Hi All,

I am running Interchange 5.1 on Mac OS X 10.3.2 Panther With standard 
Apache, MySQL and recompiled unthreaded perl 5.8.3. Its not a 
production site just a test rig in fact its running on a G3 Lombard 
Powerbook  and it works fine.

But I am having a problem setting the locale for the UK I have set the 
locale to be en_GB in the catalog.cfg file and in the Admin interface 
under internationalisation.

I have added a en_GB column to locale.txt in products directory

I have attempted to set the default tax to VAT and 17.5 % in the tax 
admin area

I have also tried to crib as much as I can from www.webmaint.net's 
excellent UK localisation documentation (thanks) and from the 
interchange documentation wiki.

The result is that Tax does not work and I have lost the default dollar 
sign but the UK pound sign has not appeared.

I don't think the problem is down to Mac OS X it is more likely to be I 
have missed some steps in the localisation.

Can anyone give me some pointers please.
