    Viewing Chinese Characters

    In order to properly view the Chinese language portions of this site, you may need to configure your computer.

    Macintosh:

    If you are using a Macintosh, you will need to install the Chinese Language Kit. The language kit is an integral part of Mac OS 9, but does not come preinstalled on your Macintosh. You will need to custom install the language kit components from the OS 9 CD that came with your Macintosh. Previous versions of the operating system did not come with the language kit on the OS or system software installer cds; instead users had to purchase the language kit separately. Once the language kit has been installed, you may need to set your font or language preferences within Netscape or Internet Explorer in order for the Chinese characters to display properly.

      Netscape 4.75:

      Open Netscape.
      On the Edit menu, select Preferences.
      Under Appearance, choose Fonts.
      Beneath the My Fonts section in the right column, change For the Encoding to Traditional Chinese.
      Change the Variable Width Font to Taipei. Change the size to 12 point.
      Change the Fixed Width Font to Taipei. Change the size to 10 point.
      (If Taipei is not available on your Macintosh, other fonts may be available including Apple LiSung Light, Beijing, Song, or Fang Song.)
      Choose OK.

      Internet Explorer 5:

      Open Internet Explorer.
      On the Edit menu, select Preferences.
      Under Web Browser in the left column, choose Language/Fonts.
      Beneath the Fonts and Size section in the right column, change the Default Character Set to Traditional Chinese.
      Change all the font settings (proportional, monospace, sans-serif, serif, cursive, fantasy) to Taipei.
      Set the font size to 12 and the resolution to 72 dpi.
      Return Default Character Set to Western (Latin 1).
      Choose OK.

    Windows:

    If you are a Windows user, NJStar Communicator will facilitate the proper display of the Chinese text. (NJStar Communicator offers a free demonstration version of this product.) NJStar Communicator works on all Microsoft Windows 95/98/NT/2000 computers and is designed to aid the viewing of Chinese, Japanese and Korean in the most recent versions of Netscape and Internet Explorer. Once installed, it should detect the character set that a web page is using and properly display the characters. You may need to set your font or language preferences within your browser in order for the Chinese characters to display properly.

      Netscape 4.75:

      Open Netscape.
      On the Edit menu, select Preferences.
      Under Appearance, choose Fonts.
      Beneath the My Fonts section in the right column, change For the Encoding to Traditional Chinese.
      Change the Variable Width Font to MS Song. Change the size to 12 point.
      Change the Fixed Width Font to MS Hei. Change the size to 10 point.
      Choose OK.

      Internet Explorer 5:

      The first time you view this site with Internet Explorer, you may be prompted to download the appropriate fonts, "To display language characters correctly you need to download and install the following components: Chinese (Traditional) Text Display Support." Download time will vary depending upon your connection speed and network traffic conditions. Once you have downloaded the appropriate fonts, you may need to set your preferences.

      Open Internet Explorer.
      On the Tools menu, select Internet Options.
      Beneath the General tab, click the Fonts button.
      Using the pull-down menu beside the Language Script option, choose Traditional Chinese.
      Set both the Web page and plain text fonts to MingLiU.
      Choose OK.
