Most people do it like this

Specify the charset in the document.


Simplified Chinese
<meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=gb2312">

Traditional Chinese
<meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=big5">

You can also specify the language type in the web server - have a look at
your apache settings.  
Doing it via the charset= method is better though imho.

Note that the download font thing is Internet Exploder Specific.   Internet
Exploder also has a few issues with different charsets.
Also note that *all* html documents should have a specified charset - even
the plain english ones. Most of the html on the internet is coded wrongly,
this does not make it correct.

I do a lot of simplified chinese development, being located in Shanghai,

Subject: [PHP] a bit off the list but should be easy

Hi people
It is about html, that when I go to some sites that ask me to download their
font like Japanese or chinese font, in order to read their language, what do
they put in the page for that kind of detection?
