[Solved] Japanese Text on a Website?

  • # January 11, 2010 at 8:54 am

    I’m trying to make a mirror site for a japanese audience, i have the translations all is great..

    but how to get it into an html? I did a bit of googling and found a charset declaration


    but im still presented with a lot of ?’s instead of working characters, presumably because my fontset is an english fontset.. so then the question begs what is a standard web-safe japanese font?

    And should that be enough to get it working?

    ps, I also have japanese language packs installed locally, so if I were to get it right I should see it no problem


    Ok, I was seriously overthinking this, apparently utf-8 and arial is plenty to get it working.
