Chinese Characters shown as square boxes on Java Console and applets
posted 13 years ago
OS Advanced Server 2.1, Platform - x86 JPI 1.4.2_01 and Netscape 7.1. I login to the system using Traditional chinese ( or change locale) and change Default Character encoding in Netscape to Big5. If an applet is loaded in Netscape, only square boxes are shown at places where chinese characters are supposed to be shown. This happens for korean and simplified chinese as well. Even the java-plugin control panel shows square boxes. Netscape itself is able to show chinese fonts if any URL having chinese content is opened. The JPI is not able to get the proper fonts. Any Idea as to why this is happening? Is it a known problem or is there any font setting required in JPI itself ?
