Yes, the language is usually called Nepali. Though sometimes also Nepalese. Hope that helps :) Anyway -- here's the BBC's Nepali home page: http://www.bbc.co.uk/nepali/ On my WinXP Home (SP2) box it correctly displays the Nepali character set in Firefox, Chrome, IE6 and Safari. It's using a font called 'Mangal', which I already seem to have on my box, though I certainly don't recall ever installing it. Does it come with Windows by default? Dunno. Note that the BBC page begins: <html lang="ne"> <head> <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8"> And the source shows things like: alt="">मिल्छन् कि भिड्छन् वाइसिएल, यूथ फोर्स (In Thunderbird the Nepali characters appear correctly in the line above... would be curious to know what others see...) -- Brent Eades Almonte, Ontario http://almonte.com -- * * Please support the community that supports you. * * http://evolt.org/help_support_evolt/ For unsubscribe and other options, including the Tip Harvester and archives of thelist go to: http://lists.evolt.org Workers of the Web, evolt !
