Jon GallegosSubject: Recognize Japanese Characters
Author: Jon Gallegos

Is there a way to recognize japanese characters?

I am getting an XML file from Japan. Some of the data is in Japanese (Kanji) some is in English. However the XML file I am to produce must be in English. I need a way to check each data field to see if it is Japanese(Kanji).

Hi Jon,
do you need to check for them manually? In this case you can open the XML document in the XML Editor, press Ctrl-F to show the Find dialog, check the 'regular expression' check box and enter "[^\x00-\xFF]" (without quotes) as search expression; this will locate the next non-English character in the document.
If you need to look for Japanese characters programmatically, you can write an XQuery or XSLT 2.0 stylesheet that executes fn:matches($myString,".*(\p{IsKatakana}|\p{IsHiragana})+.*") to detect whether the given variable contains any Katakana or Hiragana symbol (look at http://www.w3.org/TR/xmlschema-2/#nt-IsBlock for the list of IsXXX strings)

Hope this helps,
Alberto
