I am working on an online survey right now. I believe there is an encoding problem with some of the responses. Is there a way of "reading" codes such as "软"?

If there is any problem with the encoding of Chinese characters, the first thing to do is to check the Chinese fonts first.

I did, I did. Apr 21, 2008

I switched to different encoding views, but it didn't work.

WEIRD! Apr 21, 2008

I typed in a code in my first posting, but now I see "软" (ruan) instead of the code. WEIRD!

Contact the online survey coordinator or the software supplier Apr 21, 2008

Try Duncan's suggestion. However, if you are using some specific types of online survey software packages (for example, SPSS's Dimension), Duncan's suggestion may not work. You'd better contact the survey coordinator or the software supplier.
