You'll see the GBP () symbol.

Or, by code: hold down the alt key, and type 0163. At least that works for the US English version.

It might vary from keyboard to keyboard. I use a Scandinavian board and for me it is
Alt Gr and 3 (Right side ALT, if it is labelled differently for others)

This is down to your keyboard layout. All keyboards work in the same way. A key press is mapped to a location in a table. It is this table that you are changing when you select a different keyboard layout. For example, with Shift 2, US English maps to @ whereas UK English selects ". In some ways this is trivial, but I would advise you to ensure that your keyboard layout matches your physical keyboard.

That's the one that first came to mind for me. I guess I'm just not global enough.
