    Unicode font error

    I develop a webpage with unicode font
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
    and use alert javascript to show some unicode text, but sometimes it shows OK, sometimes it shows the wrong unicode characters. I do not know what is the reason, why it OK and why not.
    Anything need to delcate more in .htm?
    And in css, is there any declaration related to unicode?
    Thanks if someone point out.

    Make sure the files themselves are saved in UTF-8. Also, sometimes special characters don’t work in JavaScript (don’t remember why and how at the moment) you need to hex-encode them, e. g. a whitespace in JavaScript is declared as \u0020.

    You have to get a lot of things right for Unicode to work, the right font, the language of the page, the page document type. XML, and presumably XHTML, works well with Unicode. An .svg file is XML, and can be used to display on a web page. A browser will provide some support for it, but only some, the rest you have to provide.
