How to use occasional foreign language script

    Question

  • When I'm writing some English documents, I want to use some foreign language words for uploading to my homepage. How do I get WLW to accept these foreign words in an English document?

  • What sort of foreign words? Do you mean words that use a different character set like Cyrillic, Japanese or Arabic?

    I assume you know how to type the text you desire so what problems are you encountering specifically with WLW? Is there a problem if you type them in a different program and copy/paste them to WLW?

    Thin Ice,

    Thanks so much for getting back to me.

    Here I’m typing the English text and then insert the Greek words, Οὕτως γὰρ ἠγάπησεν ὁ θεὸς τὸν κόσμον. I copied those words. Now I’ll compose a couple of those words in Greek script from MS Word: ούτως γάρ. Let’s see how that transposes to WLW.

    When I upload this to my homepage using WordPress, this is what happens:

    Here I’m typing the English text and then insert the Greek words, ????? ??? ???????? ? ???? ??? ??????. I copied those words. Now I’ll compose a couple of those words in Greek script from MS Word: ????? ???. Let’s see how that transposes to WLW.

    Perhaps this is an issue with Wordpress. Or is it WLW?

    Your advice would be appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Oz
