seeting culture info dynamically

I have to display content (specially currencies) in the Users local format.
Currently Iam doing below in my code (VB.NET

Imports System.Web
Imports System.Web.Mail
Imports System.Net
Imports System.IO
Imports System.Globaliz ation
Imports System.Threadin g

Private Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, _
ByVal e As System.EventArg s) Handles MyBase.Load
Dim sLang As String
sLang = Request.UserLan guages(0)
Thread.CurrentT hread.CurrentCu lture = New CultureInfo(sLa ng)
End Su

My PC had US regional settings ... but I changed it to United Kingdom for
testing purpose by going to Settings>>contr ol panel>>Regional settings . I
even rebooted my PC just to make sure .
If I do String.Format(" {0:c}", 0) somehwhere in my code it displays as
$0.00 instead of £0.00 on the page
CUrrently my PC is running Windows 2000 professional. I am running the
application as localhost
Any Ideas of what I may be doing wrong......?

Thanks in advance
