non-english content can not be viewed properly

Post by aryob » Sun Oct 05, 2008 11:07 pm

I am trying to put some content in my website in Pashto language, it has few additional alphabets to arabic character set. I can see all arabic letters but not pashto.

it displays those alphabets as some other alphabets from arabic set if set to windows-1256. or shows blocks if set to utf-8 in the template page.

i've also set the mysql table collation to utf_general_ci

anyone know where the problem could be?

in template CSS files or mysql tables or something else?

thanks

Please paste here some text in Pashto containing glyphs not present in Arabic.

NEVER change the encoding in joomla 1.5. It is utf8 and should remain fully utf8.
If the pashto glyphs are included in a font installed on one's site, they should display OK.
Arial, Times New Roman do have Pashto glyphs.

thanks infograf.

i'm using joomla 1.0.13 i think not 1.5. and i understand that arial, times new roman and tahoma have pashto glyphs. let me type something in pashto.

This is the wrong forum. You should have posted in the Joomla 1.0 forums...

To use joomla 1.0 with utf8, one needs to do a few things first.

I advise you to use 1.5.7 instead where uf8 is native.
