[thelist] ASP: 2 different charsets on same page?

Ok, I did a little more brain storming here, and came up with the idea of
adding an iframe to the page and having the content of the iframe encoded as
the ISO-2022-JP charset. This works, but its not ideal because it screws up
the design a bit.</>


I tried (but couldn't) solve the problem you mentioned below when I was
developing a Japanese language version of our web-based course.  Your
solution sounds imaginative, and I'd like to see a page rendered using that
technique if you will share a URL.


Sorry for the delay. I was mega busy trying to get this website done before
leaving hokkaido. Anyway, have a look at this URL:


Beside the picture of the cat there is a small iframe with the text that
comes in from the mobile phone.  Takes a second to pop in there, but it
works :)

Is this cheating? Who knows... but I don't care because it works :)
