with the latest playbook update along with x pdf reader and the latest air browser, once browse pdf using unicode encoding for file that has non Enlish. I have tested with tradition chinese pdf files. utf-8 or other coding do not work.
as for most text filesin unicode encoding, one may browse then with the builtin web browser only:
- open web browser,
- key in file:
- press GO
- drill down to the folder containing the desired text file
- click on the file
make sure the options for the web browser is:
- detect text encoding automatically ON
if needed turn that off and change Deault Text Encoding. then turn back on aut encoding detection.
Actually with the the web browser option "detect text encoding automatically" ON. it does not care much aboue uniode encoding, it will show utf-8, unicode big endin, big5 text files correctly.
plain unicode is best and safest when there is a mixture of language fonts.
Hope people would like this.
of course we are still waiting for full support of east Asian Languages that is rumored in 2.0 although I failed to see anything about that in the blog so far
