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!

edit: I looked at your site, and it won't show up for me either, until I change the character encoding to Utf-8. By default you have it as Western-iso. So use the meta thing I posted above. ^^ That should fix it!

Thanks so much Rin!! I didn't know that about the meta-thingy, it works now :D And the converter works great too! Thank you so much :)
