Adding Chinese Text to My Web

Barbarajp_NJJune 23, 2005

I am using FrontPage 2000. I need to add a small amount of Chinese text to my web. I have a PDF file with the full Chinese language text which I can link to, but I would like to add one sentence from that file to my English language home page. I tried copy and paste but it didn't work. Would appreciate any suggestions or advice.

Thank you,

You need a special LANGUAGE command for that bit of text, to make sure it shows up correctly.

To be honest, it's a PITA because it won't show up for all you users because of the FONT issue. A screen grab of the text, inserted as a JPG would be a lot easier, and would be guaranteed to show up for everyone.

One easy thing to do is to make it a jpeg. You could match the color and the fonts easy enough in photoshop.

As an alternative, you can enter the numeric Unicode entry for each character. For instance, to display "Nippon Electric Company/NES" in Japanese Kanji, you just enter a "#" symbol and then the Unicode numbers and you get æ¥æ¬é»æ°æ ªå¼ä¼ç¤¾.

If we knew which Chinese language you were using, we could look up a table for you. If it's Han, there are some controversies over how Unicode UTF-8 handles the underlying character and the variant glyph, but you should still be able to take care of your basic needs. Unicode has a certain numeric limit that is far exceeded by Han and other Chinese languages, but you should be able to get your choice across.

Susan -
That's the "font problem" I was talking about: you don't have a UNICODE or Chinese font installed

So three years have elapsed. How many cannot see Spewey's Japanese now?

I have not updated anything in the past three and the characters all appear fine insofar as I can tell.

I can see them, and recognise the first two as the characters for Nippon.
