HTML is horrible to work with, for multilingual work. There are several places where problems can creep in: 1) The browser is using the wrong encoding. Check whether your browser has been set to "auto-detect" the encoding, or whether it is fixed to some other encoding. (In this case, the "?" means "unexpected code".) 2) Your system may have fonts installed which do not have the Japanese characters. This is less likely nowdays, but still can happen. (In this case, the "?" means "unavailable character") 3) You are reading the files over the web, and the webserver is not labelling the data correctly. You need to check your web-server's documentation for this, for example to set the .htaccess file correctly if you are using Apache. (In this case, the "?" means "unexpected code".) I hope these are some use. A systematic approach is better than trial and error: in a HEX editor, look at the HTML file your XSLT script produces:-- if the Japanese characters each take three bytes where all the bytes are > 0x80, then your file is indeed UTF-8 and you can concentrate on the HTTP and browser side of things. If the Japanese characters take two characters each, then it is not UTF-8 and you need to look at your XSLT code and implementation. Cheers Rick Jelliffe
