I can see that testing Japanese content without any problem. I think it works alright on other Japanese browsers, too. I'm looking forward to what to come.N-neko

It keeps switching between proper Japanese (or Russian) text and a disintegrated UTF-8 for me --style junk. This is Safari 2.0 on a Mac, and it normally copes fine with stuff like this. I've checked the HTTP-Equiv stuff in the HTML and the actual HTTP headers and they both report the page as 'text/html; charset=utf-8'...
Hmm. After a bit of research it appears that, since the site's using XHTML (which is basically XML), each page should open with a '<?xml version='1.0' encoding='utf-8'?>' at the beginning. I've no idea how one would go about fixing MediaWiki's templates (or whatever it uses), but there's a solution. For all one of us who use Macs. :-] ---Cargo Cult 08:37, 11 Aug 2005 (PDT)
Cargo, can you point me to where the standard for this is explained, or to a site which uses this header correctly? -- Greg

InvaderZim, what OS & Browser are you using? Thanks, -- Greg
I get a lot of question marks with some splashings of words like "xbox" - Windows XP - Deer park alpha 2 ^Ben 10:31, 11 Aug 2005 (PDT)
Having Asian fonts installed is required to see this content correctly. I believe the existing encoding in the page header is correct. If you'd like to try it out, in WindowsXP (sorry, Cargo) go to Start > Settings > Control Panel > Regional and Language Options > Languages and then click the box which reads "Install files for East Asian languages"
