Asian Characters  
Hi guys (again), haha.

As some of you may know ... I'm making an Oguri Shun fansite, but that's not really the point. I was wondering how you get the Asian characters (such as Oguri Shun's name) to appear properly on a site?

For me, I use Notepad and I simply type it in, or I copy and paste it. Then I would save it as a UTF-8 file. It works ... only if the browser's character encoding is set on Unicode. When I go to other people's websites, other people's Asian characters show up properly, but when I go to my own sites, the characters don't show up and I have to manually change the encoding! (Case in point: check out the discography section, it's a mess).

If anybody could help point me in the right direction, that would be helpful!

Ah for me, I usually don't copy and paste Asian characters until I have uploaded the file (then I'll just edit it), since it gets all messed when I save them in a Notepad file. It works fine for me, but if you find a more civilized way (LOL) tell me kay? :D
