Blackberry simulators encoding?

Is it possible to view characters other than Latin in the Blackberry simulator? Currently I see squares when I try to check sites using characters in Unicode based languages in the simulator's web browser.

Re: Blackberry simulators encoding?

Hi Emile,

 

Have you tried changing the encoding of the page through the browser menu?  When viewing your page, open the menu, and select "set encoding".  Choose the charset you wish to use, and save your changes (may require a page refresh).  The browser should now use that selected charset to evaluate the content on the page.

 

Sincerely,

Adam

Hi Adam,

 

Thanks a lot for your reply. I was able to see correct non-Roman characters when I used different Blackberry simulators. I will also try your suggestion.

 

Cheers,

Emile
