    French language pack

    I need for my computer to be able to encode French characters so that I can copy and paste French text from an e-mail into Flash for a client. Does anyone know where I can find the French language pack for Windows XP, Home Edition? I have tried searching Microsoft's site, but found nothing.

    Any help would be GREATLY appreciated, as this is one of the last things to do on a fairly big project!

    Thanks, but as far as that page is concerned, French should already be installed in my computer, yet whenever I go to set it, everything will still display in English.

    Did you reboot so that it stops using the default selected one?

    I am not sure what you want to achive. Do you want a french user interface where the Explorer and all other Windows related applications use a french wording or do you simply want to be able to enter french characters? In the latter case I would assume it shouldnt be a problem at all, as the french characters are part of the official ANSI set used by each standard Windows. Have a look at this

    What I've been trying to acheive is to have any French characters he sends through e-mail display correctly on my machine so that I can copy and paste it into Flash. He had sent me a French exerpt, but some of the French characters were replaced by misc. symbols, such as the copyright sign, so it would be displayed incorrectly if I tried to paste it into his site.
