That was a great article. I have learnt more in 15 minutes of reading than I normally do in a whole week!

It has left me with a new question though...

If I want to add Japanese text to the body of my page (and am not fluent so I must source it from a translator), do I need to convert it to utf-8 first, and then paste it in?

I'm just a bit confused about this!
