We are currently using Apache on Red Hat 9 to host our many websites. One of those sites has a number of languages available. The problem is when you go to the Japanese, Chinese Traditional, or Chinese Simplified sites, the correct character sets are not displaying. You see just scrambled code like characters.
This site was made using the japanese fonts of a windows XP machine using frontpage 2002. If while the page is open you change your encoding settings to "Japanese (Shift-JIS)" the page changes and renders the appropriate fonts. This appears to be the case for all the browsers I've tried. IE, Netscape, and Mozilla.
Does anyone know how to get the page to automatically change it's encoding to the right charset? I have (content="ja") and (charset=shift_jis) in the code which from everything I've read are the settings that tell the browser what font to use.
The only thing I can think of is that maybe I'm missing something on the server itself that needs to be installed to allow Asian fonts to properly display.
Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix this? Thanks
