Installing language support

If you are using windows/xp and you don't have an asked for CD to install support for thai and east asian languages, how else could you get the files? Can they be downloaded from somewhere? Anyone have a link?


Thanks.

Re: Installing language support

I also suggest you install http://www.nongnu.org/freefont/ as it has some characters that aren't available in the other fonts.

On the other hand, get a Mac just to do IDN. The huge Lucida Grande font on the Mac includes just about all the Unicode 4.0 characters in just one font, and many language and unicode tools are available free.

See: http://www.apple.com/macosx/features/international/

Re: Installing language support

On Windows the best you can do is the Arial Unicode MS font which includes almost all languages.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arial_Unicode_MS

You can still find Arial Unicode MS on the web. Search for it.
