Reading Thai in IE for Mac

Thanks for that feedback. I don't have a Mac to test with so if anyone has problems and has suggestions for specific changes to the HTML which would benefit the Mac, feel free to let me know.

Reading Thai in IE for Mac

Postby Karen Johnson » Fri Jan 23, 2009 2:10 pm

Out of all the links posted, it seems like this one is the best: http://www.fedu.uec.ac.jp/ZzzThai/mac/setup.html

The screenshots seem a little dated but everything went fine on the text walkthrough.

Reading Thai in IE for Mac

Postby Peterdh » Sun Mar 22, 2009 8:01 am

@Charlie: pls forget about internet explorer on the mac, it is really bad and discontinued, you should really try to use Safari or Firefox

@Sanuk: any usb keyboard will work on your mac, but why not buy a set of thai stickers and put them on your existing keyboard

@ Karen: this won't be much help to any Mac-users since "outdated" is a little eufemistic, what they show is a really old system for the mac.
regards,
peter

Yo guys I am a longtime Mac Consultant one thing to mention is on OS X the default install should include the Thai language but if a custom install of the OS was made on your computer it is possible it is missing and needs to be installed from the OS X disc.

Firefox 3 will arguably be more compatible with most sites simply because of greater market share and testing.

Reading Thai in IE for Mac

whatever you do there is still a massive problem with displaying html in thai because most webmaster lessons in thai teach the webmaster to declare a tis-620 encoding in the metas of the head of the html of the page.. this is erroneous and causes the browser to display a load of danish looking noughts and crosses.. the only way to display Thai automatically in a browser is to declare a windows-874 encoding in the head of the html page you are designing..
So often do i open a website in thai and the text doesnt display and have to go to "view\character encoding\thai-windows, to display it.. evry click on a link to the nextr page will revert to the jumbled letters again and the view\character encoding\thai-windows action must be repeated on every pagechange or refresh...
So, if you are webmaster, then remember to declare the encoding as windows-874 and your pages will always display perfectly

See my posting in Image "this thread". No matter what you put in the HTML file, your pages will not "display perfectly" if the HTTP header specifies the wrong character set. This setting cannot be authored in the HTML file, it must be configured on the web server.
