Document Encoding / Fonts
Today, HTML document standard is ISO-8859-1. Since YUROPE is bringing news
and information regarding former Yugoslavia countries, it was obvious that
language (Serbian, Croatian, Slovene etc.) and fonts (Cyrillic and Latin)
won't be easily supported using that standard. Fortunately, software vendors
are giving more attention to internationalization and localization.
Here is few simple rules that you should follow if you want to read
Yurope On-Line Magazines,
Yurope Books etc.
- If you are using Microsoft Windows 95 and any browser on that platform solution
from CD-ROM. This will give you
support to read and write documents in one of the former Yugoslavia
- In your browser:
- select one of the fonts that support "Central
European" script (e.g. Times New Roman, Arial etc.) for Latin support.
- select one of the fonts that support "Cyrillic" script (e.g. Courier
New) for Cyrillic support.
- If you are using Netscape make sure that you selected appropriate
- That's it!
- If you are using MAC, you are on your own.
- If you are using UNIX, you are on your own.
