Re: Foreign Characters

Posted by Hiran on January 23, 2002 at 11:39 AM

From an application's point of view, there's two ways to access foreign characters. For some of the more common foreign characters (ie, french, and spanish characters) you can use ASCII to display them. The extended ASCII values (129 - 255)allow that. For others, you would probably have to use Unicode. Unfortunately I haven't dealt with Unicode before, so I can't help you there. But I can help you with ASCII. Also, I'm sure you can find something on the net about Unicode, how it works and stuff like that. Hope this helps.

> For my foreign language program I've been making for the last week I need to display foreign characters. I can get some of them by holding ALT and typing 141 on the numeric keypad for example to get '�', but there are other characters I need that you can't get that way, such as an 'S', 'C' and 'Z' with symbols above them, does anybody know?
