yes, if language support is not provided foreign fonts...such as japanese
chinese hindi thai show as two english characters.  Thai has twice the
number of letters that english does.

Some languages have to be seperately installed although IE6 provides many of
them by default.  As the Web is a world wide facility it must cater for
multiple languages however until automatic translation occurs...or we all
learn many many languages like Chaals seems to ..we will be stuck with a
measure of incompatibility.  I look forward to the day when the web can
really be accessible to all wherever they are and however they access it but
sadly that day is not yet here.

The problem I had with it was that I could find no understndable text at
all.  It didn't even look like a language.  I think we have a font
problem or character set problem with this one.  I should have looked at
the source.

No more inaccessible than many.
Of course I do have the advantage I speak Thai but then why are you
assuming
that everyone speaks English?
In fact in this respect the author has added English Navigation so that
only
small parts need to be translated if needed.
