I ran this test a long time ago with Movable Type (and had to make a whole bunch of changes to get it to work properly). I thought I’d try it again with WordPress…

How does my weblog perform using unicode. See also: “Survival guide to i18n”:http://intertwingly.net/stories/2004/04/14/i18n.html. Some tests:

bq. これは日本語のテキストです。読めますか
Let’s see how Unicode and weblogs does with Japanese :) これは日本語のテキストです。読めますか?…

bq. Let us test some Hindi Text
देखें हिन्दी कैसी नजर आती है। अरे वाह ये तो नजर आती है।

And check…

    How about comments?

    Στο κι όταν διοίκηση μπορούσε. Ώρα πω κάνε διοικητικό δημιουργική, ανά βγήκε ζητήσεις τα, μάτσο περίπου ποσοστό πω και. Ένα τα πακέτο πρώτοι, μια πηγαίου μεταφραστής δε, να κλπ επεξεργασία επιχειρηματίες. Θα για’ ερωτήσεις δοκιμάσεις. Αν άτομο διαδίκτυο διαπιστώνεις όλη.

    Looks good. I notice, btw, that the comment was converted into HTML numbered entities instead of staying unicode. Or is that the way it is supposed to work?

    Of course, the final result will depend on the user’s web browser being able to display the unicode text correctly.

    *sigh; I hadn’t noticed that. No, that’s _not_ how it is supposed to work; time to investigate a little, I guess…
