One reason I was testing this is that I'd had to rewrite the encoder in my Browser Tools addon. I wondered it was worth doing, because I thought the problems of a year or two back were over, as I wrote here.

So the site seems to be OK for French, German, and most western European languages. But encoding is still worthwhile for posting lyrics in these part-Roman languages. And obviously for Russian, Hebrew, Arabic, etc - should anybody do that.

The mostly-Roman languages look superficially the same, dropping some diacritics, which will certainly change the pronunciation in Turkish and probably the others too. I expect speakers of Polish etc. are used to it.

The Greek surprised me. I didn't expect it to convert δ to d yet not use A for capital alpha.

The "current situation" is worse than before the change made about a year ago. The web site is all in UTF-8, but the database remains in some ancient codepage. The script performs a mapping on the (Unicode) input, but, alas, not to HTML escapes (which would be finde), but to characters of the said codepage that the programmer deems "close enough".

The "Preview" no longer makes good for its name - what a shame!

All this has been discussed endlessly, and in the end the worst possible solution was chosen. Some Western languages turn out OK, most others miss out, and many posters are deceived by the "Preview".

Recent Microsoft OS (Windows) installations allow you to select any one of approximately 128 different "regionalized" keyboards1 so that you can type in about any language you're likely to want to use. Changing the keyboard to something other than the hardware you have of course doesn't change the labels on the keys.

1 To see the keyboards at the link you'll need to allow popups, since the keyboard "picture" appears as a popup. You also have to click the "Shift" key to see the shifted chars. You can "snatch the picture" using Alt-PrtScn and paste it somewhere, but no one has found a way to get them other than one at a time.

While recent Windows includes two "extended fonts" called "Lucida Sans Unicode" and "Arial Unicode MS" that include quite a few characters not in common "Western" fonts (about 1,700 chars total), they're not even close to including a complete Unicode character set, although they're sufficiently huge that loading them may cripple some computers. (Use only when necessary.) On most HTML websites, using the extended sets will result in lots of "unreadables," so those should be used only if you need them to typeset your thesis for paper printing.

Even the plain vanilla "Times New Roman" in my Win7 installation includes about 840 characters, which is sufficient for most uses.

In Start|All Programs|Accessories ALL WINDOWS VERSIONS at least since Win95 (I'm not sure about Win 2.0 or 3.1?) should include the "Character Map" that display any font you have installed, displays the characters as they'll print in that font, and gives you the Unicode HEX number for the character, or in a few cases the ANSI number for ones you can enter with Alt-NumPad.

(Of course Bill has a minimum of nine programs to do each little trick, but I don't consider them very necessary when Word does nearly all of them.)

Note that using a font that includes "more characters" is senseless in HTM since you cannot control what fonts anyone readiing (or trying to read) your post will have on their computer.

"It is exceedingly rude, and useless to attempt to specify a font when posting to an HTML website." (Adobe PostScript Bible for Win95, ca. 1997)

Jack - I see your poo poo okay. The browser shouldn't affect what you see, but the encoding your browser is set to use may not be the one needed for special characters. Your own computer also must have a character set (font) installed and accessible in order for them to show.

IE allows you to choose "auto select" for encoding (on the View menu) and it generally picks "Western European ISO" for me and it does poo poo.

Recent Windows versions will include at least a couple of "Unicode" fonts, one of which is Lucida Sans Unicode, and I think there are a couple of others. The Times New Roman that I have is a "Unicode extended" font, but I'm not sure whether it came with Windows or was "acquired elsewhere." NONE OF THESE will include all Unicode characters, but they do include lots of characters that aren't in "normal" fonts. (The two listed at the link are apparently both Apple fonts and I don't have either of them on my machine.)

Before Win98SE, Windows loaded all the installed fonts at bootup, and loading even one of the "Unicode extended" fonts would pretty much fill all the RAM you had. Recollection is that Win98SE loaded only "the first thousand" or something of the sort. Later versions (I'm not too sure about WinXP or Vista(?)), load only a "basic set" at startup, and can "call up" other fonts, or selections from them, "as needed," so you can put all your fonts in the Font folder and Windows "finds anything you've got," but only loads what gets asked for into RAM/Temp memory.

Changing the "encoding" in your browser might display this one, but using it for general web postings is a little dangerous since many computers people will use don't handle many characters over 4 "hex digits" long, and this is a 5-digit character.

&#x1F4A9; = 💩 shows for me in Win7/IE10.

An alternate method for specifying colors is to use a "6-digit" Hex number for the color you want. The first two Hex numbers give the "amount of red." The next two give the amount of green. The last two give the amount of blue.

While theoretically this allow you to specify any color in the RGB spectrum, exact display on your monitor or in print may not be something that is assured.

<font color=#FF0000;>This is pure red</font> = This is pure red

<font color=#00FF00;>This is pure green</font> = This is pure green

<font color=#0000FF;>This is pure blue</font> = This is pure blue

<font color=#883888;>What color is this?</font> = What color is this?

Note that I did leave the </font> off of all except the first size in the display versions. You really should have an "end" for each tag, or at least end them all with </font></font></font></font></font> ... at the end of the last font change. If you don't close each one and reopen a new one with each change, as you go, it's easy to lose track of how many times to end end end them.

There are also a couple of other standard ways of getting different text sizes with a "Title1" "Titel2" or "Header1" etc, but I find the simple numbers sufficient. The problem is that the page header may set an unusual size, so you sort of need to preview to see how big a particular number will look relative to the rest of the page.
