Quattro Pro and symbols in footers (using ctrl+w)

When inserting a symbol in a cell, say Euro or Pound w/use of ctrl+w to get to the symbols, it works fine.  BUT can't get it to work right in footers or headers you get other than the indicated (by picture) results.  So, I went through the Typographical Symbol Set (set 4,...) one by one and found the symbol to use in footer or header - for Euro have to use 4,94 (in a cell one uses 4,72).  I cannot find a similar work around for the British Pound symbol.  Anyone have a suggestion (besides getting Corel to fix the problem [find it exists as a problem all the way back to Word Perfect X5])?
