Converting The Pound Symbol
Posted on Friday 31st May 2019 in Snippet

Had a task where I needed to add the GBP symbol £ to a pdf which is built up using FPDF. Since FPDF does not support UTF8 encoding, it would not render the GBP (£) character;

The fix for this is to convert the character first.

iconv("UTF-8", "ISO-8859-1", "£");
