In Locale.txt you need a row with currency_symbol in the first field
(probably already there).  You then need to make sure there is a £ sign in
the en_GB column.

Set TAXFIELD=multi, and put "default=17.5%, food=0" in the tax column of the
country table, and also  "default=17.5%, food=0, mv_shipping=17.5%" in the
tax column in the country table.
