However, I have no idea on how to input or enter Japanese characters into this environment.

Can someone please enligthen me?

How are you connecting?
Do you want data for a database?

I wonder if you installed the language pack into the web browser. Went to a Japanese web site and save a page with Japanese charaters Smilie

PS can you read Japanese?

No so complicated man!

For example in English Win2000 environment, what I need to do is go to control panel->Regional Option->Input Locales and choose the desired language input.

Then I will be able to type the Japanese text onto my environment.

How to do the same thing in my Sun Solaris 8?

Please help and thanks
