After upgrading my (UK) iMac to 10.7 I find that the £ and # keys are transposed i.e. shift-3 gives # and alt-3 gives £ which, I assume, is the standard US layout. I also upgraded my MacBook but this transposition didn't occur. What's going on here?!

    >System Preference>Keyboard>Keyboard

    and turn on the Show keyboard & Character Viewer

     

    select input source

     

    <SHOW INPUT VIEW IN MENU BAR> then menubar show keyboard view.

     

    With your option key you can get an overview.

     

    My alt-3 is showing this   £

    shift-3 is showing this #

    Thanks. Foolish of me. I had the US keyboard enabled. The UK keyboard is labelled British which also confused me.
