How to display web pages in Japanese?In order to display Japanese web pages, on the one hand you should have got a web browser compatible with Japanese language such as Netscape or MS Explorer, on the other hand a system extension which adds Japanese characters to your system.
For Macintosh users, the choice is limited. If you are using Mac OS 8.5 or later, it is sufficient to install "Multilingual Internet Access" from the system CD-Rom of Apple. Otherwise, you should absolutely obtain Japanese Language Kit which works from the system version 7.1. For Windows users, there exist several solutions, but we recommend Kanjikit Dash if you use Netscape, and Microsoft Global IME if you use MS Explorer.
Once got those products, you should set up the browser. For this purpose, Choose Japanese font from "View" menu of the browser. The selection of "Auto-detect" is judicious because it is your browser which determines the coding method used by your favorite site.
