Language fonts?

Post by baloonman » Tue Sep 18, 2007 10:00 pm

Hi, every time i open up the anime lists, for foreign titles i always see "?????" rather then the language itself. Sometimes i just see box's.

Im using windows 2000 on this comp. On another comp with XP i noticed it displays other languages perfectly while using the same browser language settings. Can anyone help me with this?

Thanks in advance.

question is whether a default win2k install has build in unicode support and the fonts needed to display it... no idea.
I've not touched M$ systems for quite a while now. But IIRC there was some setup option to install asian languages or something... Maybe you're simply missing the fonts needed to display kanji characters?

Something like:

You go to controll panel -> Language Settings -> (second tab, I don't remember the label) -> Check the box "install support for east Asian languages".

You will need your windows CD.

And as of exp. I'm not using Windows. so I can't check if this is correct.
