Japanese fonts question

Postby Takeshi » Thu 09.21.2006 12:38 am

when i try to type in japanese, it doesn't show on my screen as japanese fonts, but a bunch of weird characters.

but anyways, however if i hit the submit button, then the fonts show up properly as japanese characters. is there a way to see the actual japanese fonts as i type them? :|

also after i loaded in the japanese fonts, my screen fonts on this website got really tiny, while the screen got really wide. anyone had this problem before?

i figured out typing the japanese fonts, but not the font size problem.

anyways, if you have this problem you have to...
> go to the preferences
> click on language/fonts
> check your default character sets and make sure they all have a japanese font set in the boxes. i used the one that describes the (auto detect font.)

i hope this can help people if they have the same problem as me. oops, i forgot to mention, this is for macs. ;)

where do you go to change that option?
In the desktop settings or in the Internet options??
Cause I have Windows 2000 Professional and I don't find any IME to install ro else...
I can see Japanese fonts sometimes like on MSN messenger and so on, but I can't see them when somebody sends me an email with kanji, hiragana or katakana...
The same with the mail I get from this website teaching everyday a new kanji, I can't see the kanji....
Could somebody help me?
Thanks a lot in advance !! ;)
