Hi Oct 28, 2005

To see properly the texts in various languages, including Hebrew, you should use the proper encoding in your browser.

To change the encoding please go to the 'View' menu of your browser and choose Encoding > Hebrew > Windows-1255. It should help.

Concerning the second part of your posting: I am not sure, what do you mean by "I could not either send an email to: http://www.proz.com/forum/10 ". Could you please be more specific in describing your problem?

Natalia

Hebrew encoding (window 1255) did not help Oct 28, 2005

Thank you Natalia, yes I have done just that and still could not view or read Hebrew texts.

As for the web address, my mistake: it is not an email address

Kind regards

Well, here is an example of your recent question:
http://www.proz.com/kudoz/1169667

You posted it in unicode, so the question line looks fine. The gibberish in the 'add note' field is a text in a corrupted encoding which is neither unicode nor win-1255. We often have the same problem with cyrillics, so don't be upset, you are not alone. But we are in a better situation with cyrillics, because we have a couple of good decoders that help us read most corrupted encodings.

Please remember to check the encoding in your browser before asking a question. Please remember also that quite often a text in a language with non-latin alfabet looks corrupted when pasted from Word. And one more thing: people may use different encodings (by mistake or intentionally), so if you cannot read something in one encoding, just try another one.
