It is the whole content value of the meta tag
that needs to be quoted and case is not important.

There are five ways I can think of to represent
the pound sign, the simplest being £

Although the doc type and charset declarations
are required, all but the two-byte utf-8
repesentation of the character will display
correctly even if utf-8 is not specified.

   <meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8">
<li>Smith &#163;1,000
<li>Jones &#xa3;2,000
<li>Allen &pound;3,000
<li>King &#x00a3;4,000
<li>Haig 5,000
