Document Encoding for displaying IDNs on a webpage

Sorry if this is a silly question, but I cant seem to figure it out.

I would like to make a webpage, listing all of my IDNs.

However, I cant get them all to appear properly, and I think that the problem is the Document Encoding code of the page.

I use Dreamweaver, if that helps ??

Any idea what or how I would need to do to be able to display my IDNs on a webpage ?? There are a mixture of Japanese, Greek, Chinese and a few others.


Thanks


Alex

Re: Document Encoding for displaying IDNs on a webpage

I had the same problem. Frontpage would change the unicode into the actual character designations (ie. &4323; ).

Try changing the character set to UTF-8: <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8">

This made Frontpage leave the unicode as unicode.

Re: Document Encoding for displaying IDNs on a webpage

Thanks for the reply.

I did try the one you suggested, and it doesn't seem to be working for me.

I'll have to look into it a little closer to see whats the problem.

Thanks for the quick reply - much appreciated.

Re: Document Encoding for displaying IDNs on a webpage

Post a link to the problem web page.

It could be that your Apache server is overriding your encoding selection.

• Do you run your own server?
Change or add the following line to your apache config file to read.
AddDefaultCharset UTF-8

Example using virtual servers:

< VirtualHost *:80 >
DocumentRoot "/home/n/html"
ServerName xn--vus.tv
HostnameLookups on
CustomLog logs/vus.txt combined
AddDefaultCharset utf-8
< /VirtualHost >


• Not running your own server? Add the following line into world readable file named .htaccess in the directory you want.
AddDefaultCharset UTF-8

Re: Document Encoding for displaying IDNs on a webpage

The link to the problem page is ...

http://www.namedotextension.com/idn-domains.html

This is the page I am trying to get working.

I dont run my own server, but added the htaccess file like you suggested.

Still not showing up properly.

You are serving real utf-8. It appears that your editor, however, is destroying the content when it is saving it.

This shouldn't be a problem. Unicode &# entities should work fine too no matter what actual encoding is being sent.

Re: Document Encoding for displaying IDNs on a webpage

What OS are you using?
Since it might be a few pages do this.
I'm an expert in using dreamweaver.

Don't automatically change the encode with a search & replace.
Do it manually.

If that doesn't work.

Open each page
Change the encode manually.
Then repaste the text & upload that should work.

I have a mac & PC Laptop with Dreamweaver & should be able to help.

Yeah, when I changed the encoding to UTF-8, the &# entries changed to unicode. I was glad I didn't have to repaste all that text.

Re: Document Encoding for displaying IDNs on a webpage

Edit your pages in Mozilla Suite, it does a good job with unicode.

Re: Document Encoding for displaying IDNs on a webpage

Sorry for the late reply, and thanks to everyone.

Blastfromthepast - the Mozilla Suite worked a treat.

Thanks for that suggestion - it was much appreciated.


Alex

Olney - if you got any tips on how to work with IDNs and Dreamweaver, I would be most grateful.
