Kind of hard to explain, but the other day I was shopping at kohls.com and it seemed my $ switched to the british pound sign. I though it was me accessing the web site through a wrong link and so I restarted my shopping by closing that link and opening a new web page... to have the same issue. The symbol was interchanged; however, the value of what I was buying was in american dollars (just with the british pound sign). I completed my purchase and didn't think about it again until today.
Today I go on to shutterfly to look at christmas cards and I get this symbol: £ instead of the dollar sign. Kind of weird to now have 2 web sites with messed up symbols right? I checked my system and it still has me in the USA... and I haven't found another site to give me an non $ symbol.

I've never encountered this (and I shop alot online)... any thoughts? I rescanned my computer (with Norton.... I know not the best) and nothing was detected.

Thank you so much for the help! I'm curious why this happened when it was fine before?

Site or forum maintenance may have introduced a bug undocumented feature in the site coding. Difficult to know what was done on the backend of the site to possibly cause it.
