Sorry, I should have mentioned that I have tried this, but will give
it another go.

Yes, the number 3 does work. The other interesting thing is if I run
onScreen, when the visual shift key is pressed, the other numbers all
change to theire respective characters, but not the 3. It is almost as
if the £ sign is not bound to the number 3.
