How to detect if Chinese characters are installed? RRS feed

  • User-785021171 posted


    my dictionary page displays Chinese characters. As far as I know, if a user doesn't have Chinese character set installed on his computer, it displays a bunch of graphical characters instead. I'd like to avoid this by hiding them. Is there a way to detect that a user's pc doesn't support Chinese?

    Thanks a lot for any answer,
