Hi there,

How can I display an HTML Page with text in more than a single CharSet??

I am aware that setting the character set for the entire page can be done using
the META Tags, is there a way to do this at Tag level?? - i.e. apply a different
Charset to an area of Text?

Imagine a page divided into two paragraphs of text, at the top would be one
paragraph of text using Japanese "x-sjis" and another just underneath in
Character set "iso-8859-9"??.

I have found references to the charset attribute in the DIV and SPAN tags
in various HTML reference manuals, however they do not display correctly.

For example: -

<!-- Japanese -->
<DIV CHARSET="x-sjis">
*SJ'[Í kfAf<Eftf@[fefBfnl

<!-- Turkish -->
<DIV CHARSET="x-sjis">
İşte sana o Kitap! Kuşku,çelişme,tutarsızlık yok onda.Bir kılavuzdur o,korunup 
sakınanlar için.

I have also seen CHARSET referred to as LANG. There was another message
posted regarding the difference between the two but there was no Reply.

I would be extremely grateful for some help. - Thanks for your time.

Best Regards,
