  • Visit
  • Click "PRODUCT UPDATES" on the left upper menu.
  • Mark the appropriate language support check boxes.

  • MicroSoft Internet Explorer support Auto Language Selection. However, it may use the wrong language to display pages. To correct this problem, you can:

  • Click on View -> Encoding -> More.
  • Select the proper language.

  • Help on Asian language fonts:

    While many languages use the same encoding as English for Web display, a significant number of languages require double-byte character sets. Roman languages such as English or Italian can be encoded with less than 256 characters. Asian languages often have thousands of characters, and therefore cannot be encoded in the single-byte, 256-character limit. Languages that require double-byte encoding include Chinese, Japanese, and Korean.

    If you are viewing a Chinese, Japanese or Korean Web page and your browser doesn't properly display the characters, you can install language support feature for Microsoft Explorer as stated above, or:

  • Install or re-install the correct font in your browser, and
  • Set up the font in your browser to view the characters.

  • To download the font from this Web site, please follow the instructions below:

  • Choose the right font to download.
  • Download and unzip the font into c:\windows\fonts directory.
  • In I.E., set up the font in "Tools/Internet Options/Fonts", and select the font in "View/Encoding" to view the characters (see chart 1, 2 & 3). In Netscape, set up the font in "Edit/Preferences/Fonts", and select the font in "View/Encoding" to view the characters (see chart 4 & 5).
  • If your browser still can't properly display the characters, please check whether or not:

  • You have downloaded the font required to view the characters on the Web page;
  • Your have unzipped and put the font into c:\windows\fonts;
