I hope she passed on a users comments about the legibility of:

Agreed: but this is not the same as atext symbol used in the way
\textsterling and \textlira are.

What some people would like (certainly not me) is guidance as to
how to design a glyph corrresponding to this sign to live in an
exisitng fount.

But do bankers webmasters understand that idea at all?

And if he is interested in printed text (not banknotes, but if he has
some to spare I can find a good home for them).

A grep for fount or font or glyph or ... would be useful.
