[Zope] Using Chinese Characters
Mon, 11 Sep 2000 03:09:57 GMT
Thanks for the tip. Your help is much appreciated. Further to your reply, I
would like to ask what the differences of UTF-8 are compared to Big5 Code.
Apparently (from my research on Big5) it is the most commonly used unicode
for chinese characters. Kindly advice.
Thank you once again.
