    Using Tibetan in an XML document

    I am using a Flash MP3 player that takes its track/artist names from a xml document. The problem is that some of my song titles are in tibetan and they show up in the flash player as blank, as english text shows up normally.

    I am writing the tibetan using Microsoft Himalaya in a word document and cutting and pasting the words into the XML. However, any method getting the tibetan in there is fine.

    I'm not sure what to do, if I need to add a new font to the flash player? A new encoding? If I need to add something to the XML file?

    thanks in advance

    You're pretty much going to have to use UTF-8 encoding, you're also going to have to use a font that supports international characters along with @font-face, I would suggest the Gentium font-family. You've got a bit of a learning curve ahead of you. You may have problems with IE, your users may have to use Firefox or Chrome, or other fully compliant browsers.

    Try you pages in Firefox first and see how they render.
