For a while now, I have been unable to type in any language other than English, since I moved to using Godaddy as the web host. Being USA-centric, the backed database was set to ‘English’ by default, instead of unicode (utf-8). So, all of my previous posts that had any foreign language in it showed up as “????” instead of the of actual characters I typed in.
It has bugged me for ages, because I did not want to take the risk of destroying 5 years worth of blog posts! But, I have finally taken the courage to do the conversion.. and fortunately succeeded!! So here are some foreign characters to test….
Chinese – 你好嗎 ? How are you?
Japanese – お元気ですか？Are you well?
Korean – 안녕하세요! Hello!
Vietnamese – Anh có khoẻ không How are you?
Thai – สวัสดีครับ Hello, how are you?
Yes.. being an Asian language fanatic, I have been dying to be able to post in anything other than English again.
Life is good……
