View Full Version : IPA characters: are they available?

13-02-05, 20:35
I'm looking for a way to correctly display the International Phonetic Alphabets. Right now if I use the IPA's from my HWP wordprocessor, they change into garbled codes in JREF posts. Is there a way to go around this strange garbling?

Thanks for your help.

Sorry I'm a bit late on adding to this, but I'd love to be able to correctly post the IPA as well. Any thoughts/suggestions?

Thanks for the great wiki link, which I downloaded and fav'd for reference ! :cool:
I posted a similar question in Linguistics/German Pronunciation and Lina Inverse posted this;
You'll have to set the Codepage to "Western" (Iso-8859-1), then it displays fine.
I used the charmap to look for the Ipa chars.

Table of Unicode Characters 128 to 999 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Table_of_Unicode_characters%2C_128_to_999)
The International Phonetic Alphabet, revised 1993, Updated 1996 (http://www.linguiste.org/phonetics/ipa/chart/keyboard/)

My system still cannot display after setting display encoding to Western Europe, Unicode, or Unicode UTF-8. Any ideas ? Which char table works without problems ?

I need a fool-proof way with multiple scripts in one document. (Yes, I am the fool in these matters !! :blush: )
Can somebody please teach me how I can display the native scripts in the follow languages ?

In order of importance (for me)

Top Priority

1. IPA: the International Phonetic Alphabet
2. Roman: for English, German (for the umlaut vowels), French (for the accents)
3. Cyrillic: for Russian, Mongolian, other localized Cyrillic for ethnic groups
4. Non-JIS kanji/hanja/hanzi

Next in Priority

5. Greek with the breathing and accent symbols
6. Classical Mongolian (written sideways) without vowel markings, and the one with vowel markings

When I want to work with three scirpts & IPA, for example, English, IPA, German, & Mongolian Cyrillic, what will gurantee me that all the characters show without corruption ???

Any help will be greatly appreciated ! Thanks.

I wish I could help (for the German), but since I am just a dumb user who doesn't know anything about native scripts or so.
I am going to ask my friend.

for html (hpertext) documents, you can include a <meta ...> tag into the header.

for example:

<META HTTP-EQUIV="Content-Type" CONTENT="text/html; charset=iso-2022-jp">
<title>keitai icons</title></head>

this selects (and loads/installs if necessary) charset iso-2022-jp where ever the page is displayed.

it may work for other languages, if you can figure out the charset name for internet display.
