a few points you may consider:

- most servers don't support utf-16.

- are you sure that the actual encoding matches what your tag announces?

- in some cases, you may have font tag issues as well, i.e. you may be
forcing the browser to use a font that does not offer japanese glyphs.

Hi there,

I'm hoping someone can help me. We send out html files for Japanese
translation. These files are returned with the encoding:

<META HTTP-EQUIV="Content-Type" CONTENT="text/html; charset=UTF-16">
<META HTTP-EQUIV="Content-Language" CONTENT="jp">

With this encoding, I cannot view the Japanese fonts, only box characters. I
tried using other encodings: Shift_JIS, and iso-2022-jp. But these all don't
seem to work.

What other things could I pinpoint to know why these fonts are displaying
properly? Could it be the use of text editor versus html editor?  Am I
missing another tag?

Please help me! Thanks in advance.
