All the Chinese characters show up as weird symbols and are unreadable. Do I need special software just to read the Chinese discussion here?

BTW, I am running Microsoft Windows XP. I'd really appreciate someone's help on this.

If you are using Microsoft Internet Explorer as your browser, enter Alt+V for "View" and then "D" for "Decoding" --- Just set the right decoding for your view. Good luck!

Thanks a lot, Wenjer Apr 7, 2005

Now I can read the Chinese characters. I still need to learn how to reply in Chinese. But I'll leave that to another day. Thanks again.

我现在可以用中文对话了。花了点儿时间,可总算琢磨出来了。再次谢谢您的帮助。
