displaying japanese

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I am trying to build a site with a language selector.

The problem is that the japanese is often displayed as scrambled text.

I guess there is a way to tell the browser what language you want to display but I can not find it.

Can anyone point me to a solution (webpage, tutorial)

you can take a look at possible scrambled japanese here
(language selector is not online yet)

I use mozilla firefox 1.5.0.2 to display my pages. The text is displayed correctly if I select the correct language in the view -> character encoding menu

Kind regards
anatak

Hope that is of help - its best to define the character set in the head part of the page using meta tags.

thank you this is a step in the right direction.

do you know if it is possible to define separate languages in cells of tables ?
I am working on a dictionary that displays japanese and french.
If I put the meta content to japanese, the french is unreadable and if I put it to western character set then the japanese is unreadable.

kind regards
anatak

I've not played with languages much so I'm not the best person to help with it, sorry I can't help more.

Best thing to do is read up on the M$ site.
