    Simple.. All you have to do is change the encoding of the page by declaring a character set in the meta tags.

    Look at the source at: http://www.dmoz.org/World/Japanese/

    To see what I mean.

    If you use a Unicode Font you can cut and paste Japanese.. Just might not look like it in your editor. Make sure your are using a Unicode font and your editor is Unicode aware. Then add:
    <META HTTP-EQUIV="Content-Type" CONTENT="text/html; charset=EUC-JP">

    To you page.

    You can also go into Word and choose "Save As" and select HTML in the file type list. Then move that into your template.

    i have a question, this did work, but it works because of a font called MS Mincho which i do not think everyone has, do you think that the japanese visitors will have this font?

    I saw it in Japanese and I don't have that font installed. I do have the unicode version of Times New Roman installed which is what I think it used.

    I just saw something that looked like a barcode.

    It slowed my computer considerably too.

    Do you have the Japanese translator for your browser installed? If your using IE make sure that Install on Demand is enabled and go back to the site. Warning Japanese support is like a 30 minute download at 28,800 baud.

    That's what makes it even stranger.

    I frequently do get the Install on Demand prompt, but not this time.

    I took another look, and the same thing happened.

    It could just be my computer.

    FYI: Win98, IE5
