Windows 7: Chinese Characters Not Showing properly in edit text

24 Mar 2013   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium, Service Pack 1, 64 bit
Chinese Characters Not Showing properly in edit text


I have problems inputting Chinese characters. (no problem in viewing Chinese characters though)
They show up as squares in the edit field. But once I hit enter, the chinese character will show up properly.

A bit confusing but I think the screen shot below will show the situation clearer.

Some details here
- Windows 7 Home Premium Service Pack 1.
- 64 bit operating system
- Chinese Simplified Quan Pin (version 6.0)

Appreciate if anyone can help. Thanks!!

Check encoding settings of your browser. Is it unicode? (I'm not sure enough).
