# [tex-live] italic Pound sign

Hi,

My perl script used to convert database files into a tex like file
produces the following bit of code.

\begin{math}\mathbf{\boldsymbol{\pounds}25.00}\end{math}

This was the only way that I could get a 'bold' pound sign, but this is
in an italic font, only the pound sign - not the numerals.

It doesn't look bad, but then I would prefer it in an upright font, what
am I doing wrong here?
