Re: [NTB] Can't Display Korean Hangul
- Hi, Jody.
I gave up on this after reading your reply and doing some more
experimentation. I'm back, though, because:
1. I hate having to use Notepad when I have something that should
be so much better.
2. I don't understand why this works so well in Notepad but not
in NoteTab. It seems to me that NoteTab features and
functionality should be a superset of Notepad's.

nothing but garbage when trying to display Korean.

Could this be the problem? Are the font settings not changing

Does anyone have any more ideas? Is no one else using NoteTab
P.S. I tried installing NoteTab Standard after my lack of success
with NoteTab Light. I installed it to a different directory, but
it still says NoteTab Light when I run and looks identical. Why

Indeed, many non-Roman writing systems use unicode (I think it uses 16 bits per character rather than the 8 bits that extended Ascii uses). The Notetab help file explicitly says that when Notetab opens a unicode file, it converts into Ascii the characters that exist in Ascii, and the rest cannot be converted. I tried pasting some Korean that I cut from a web page into NoteTab Pro and what I got was a string of question marks. I pasted the same string into Wordpad and it showed up as Korean.

Editors that handle unicode files have been especially written to do that. NoteTab is not written that way.

the same in both of them. It is Pro that is different the those.
You probably will not have any luck at all with Pro trying to
display the font as Pete pointed out.
As far as Light starting, my guess is that you are using a
shortcut to Light thinking it is Std. Check out the shortcut
Prosperities by right clicking over it.
Other than setting the font and the script in Std/Light as we
discussed I don't know of any other reason why it won't work or
what to do to make it work.
