System locale to be changed? RRS feed

  • Question

  • User507483340 posted

    In order to support double byte characters, one has to install the desired fonts etc. But is it necessary to change the System locale? If my site is developed for both english and japanese, and if the web server is having system locale as english, then it does not display japanese characters. However, on changing the locale to japanese, it shows both english as well as jaapnese characters. Why is this happening?

    If this is the case, then if tomorrow i have to support Chinese locale as well, then how do i do it? Should i host the site on separate web servers , each with its own locale settings?


    Help pls!!
