Sorry if this isn't very helpful, but... your question is a little confusing. First, soompi.com looks to me to be all in English. Are there pages with only Asian (presumably Korean) fonts?

Second, if you want to view Korean fonts in Mozilla, don't you just need to go into View-->Character Coding-->Auto-Detect-->Korean? I am usually able to view Chinese fonts in Mozilla Firebird with no problem. Sorry if the menu routing is different in Firebird and Mozilla -- I can't get vanilla Mozilla to open on this machine, since I've got Firebird installed. Also, sorry if I've answered your question erroneously.

Jiawen, I have tried what you said before I read this thread, but it did not work. I am still trying to figure how I could at least be able to view korean on sites and being able to type in korean and view the sites in korean would be even better. Thanks.

I don't know about suse, but in redhat the fonts and IME are already there. The problem is that the fonts are ugly so people have to set font size and non-anti-alias range correctly. I guess there are some 12/16/20/24 fixed fonts. Use them would get the best results.

Don't ask me how to, I don't know how to do that yet. debian.org should have good documents about that

If you have access to a windows computer that has the Asian fonts you want, you could just grab them. It should just be matter of throwing in the .ttf or .ttc files into the right folders.

Yeah sorry, I should of said that i use gentoo and not redhat or suse. I did you redhat before and i know that they came with korean fonts and everything. I have tried a couple of things, but could not get them to work on gentoo.
