    check my page

    i think i've solved the language problem for this website i'm working on, it needs to display arabic and english simultaneously(thanks meow and oracleguy!).
    now, my windows is arabic-enabled, so naturally, the arabic is working fine on my pc. i need to know how it displays for everyone else. could u peeps please check out this page, take a screenshot of it, and post it here, and don't forget to mention ur browser.
    thanks a bunch

    It's fine here too. I also have Arabic language support (I think it's installed by default on English Windows). Others will be prompted I guess if they haven't turned that off.'

    Correction - no they won't! On that multilingual site I posted earlier I'm not prompted about the languages that can't be displayed on my puter. Maybe it's just a matter of having the right unicode fonts installed. This is confusing.

    lmao, edit out my undue praise why don't you

    meow, I think you will be prompted, at least I used to get prompted for chinese and that kind of thing. It's hard for me to tell as I've probably got all language support installed Anyway they'll either be prompted to install or they'll just get garbled characters. You might want to link to the language pack or necessary Microsoft page or at least stick a help link up just incase.

    mouse (can I eat you? ), I don't know. As said, I just recalled that I haven't been prompted when I have visited unicode sites that contain languages I can't view.

    Maybe the prompting thing only happens when the site declares a charset that my system doesn't support. Since unicode is supported (even if I don't have fonts to display every language) it doesn't happen. Just a thought.

    thanks for checking it out ppl.

    redhead and meow, which browsers?

    Maybe the prompting thing only happens when the site declares a charset that my system doesn't support. Since unicode is supported (even if I don't have fonts to display every language) it doesn't happen. Just a thought.
    that's what i'm wondering. this site used charset=windows-1256, not unicode. does it prompt you, look fine?

    i went over to a friend who had IE 5, and her windows wasn't arabic-enabled. the arabic did show correctly but the fonts were funny.

    can anyone with older or different browsers please check my page as well?

    edit--
    my windows is arabic-enabled, meaning that all i have to do to start typing arabic into notepad is Alt+Shift. which is why, no matter what i do, the arabic is always going to show up right for me (unless i disable the arabic...but i can't do that 'coz this is actually my dad's laptop ).
