    Unhappy IPA characters: are they available?

    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.

    H: How do you know ? You're not fish.
    Z: How do you know I don't ? You're not me.
    H: True I am not you, and I cannot know. Likewise, I know you're not, therefore I know you don't.
    Z: You asked me how I knew implying you knew I knew. In fact I saw some fish, strolling down by the Hao River, all jolly and gay.

    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 !
    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
    The International Phonetic Alphabet, revised 1993, Updated 1996

    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 ?

    Unhappy Help with Multiple Scripts, Please !

    I need a fool-proof way with multiple scripts in one document. (Yes, I am the fool in these matters !! )
    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 漢字

    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.

    tagging

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

    for example:

    <html><head>
    <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.
