Hi Jeri,

IE actually offers excellent language support. Have you already downloaded all necessary language support components? if you open your IE browser, select "Tools" and head for the "Windows Update". Just check all Japanese language tools and start the download.

Basically, IE offers the following Japanese language encoding (select "View" > "Encoding"):

Japanese (Auto-Select)
Japanese (Shift-JIS)
Japanese (EUC)

Here some excerpts from Microsoft's support pages:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


SYMPTOM
When you have the Japanese Language Support component installed in Internet Explorer and you view a Japanese-language Web site, the text may be unreadable.


CAUSE
This behavior can occur if Internet Explorer cannot automatically detect the character set used on the Japanese Web site.


RESOLUTION
To resolve this behavior, manually select the appropriate language in Internet Explorer:


Internet Explorer 4.0, 4.01, 4.01 Service Pack 1
On the View menu, point to Fonts, and then click Japanese (Auto Select).

-or-

Right-click a blank area on the Web page, point to Language, and then click Japanese (Auto Select).


Internet Explorer 5+
On the View menu, point to Encoding, point to More, and then click Japanese (Auto Select).

Additional query words: garbled illegible

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hope that helped you a bit! :)

I have found a sweet short cut around not being able to see japanese characters on your browser...

http://web.shodouka.com/

This site turns the garbage into images...A little intense on memory, but well worth it.

Thanks for the link, John. Shodouka is a great page, these guys are already online since 1995.
