讀寫中文電郵須知

最好是裝 Microsoft Windows XP其他版本的中文輸入顯示解決辦法比較複雜...
Upgrade to Microsoft Windows XP if possible. It resolves decades of Chinese
display issues occurred in previous Windows versions. Avoid using “old”
internet browsers that may not be capable of displaying Chinese Fonts.

電腦設定
Computer Setup

1.     在美國,新買的電腦不能顯示中文? 很可能是因為 Files for East Asian Language
還沒有裝.根據以下步驟也許就可不必麻煩別人而解決您的問題
...
Is your computer set up for displaying Chinese characters?

(a)   Go to Control Panel -> Regional and Language Options -> Languages
(b)   Make sure your Microsoft Windows environment is set up properly.
       
Files for East Asian Language must be installed (see diagram 見圖示)

2.  您的電腦有沒有加增中文輸入鍵盤配置...
Is your computer set up for writing Chinese characters? You should see an
“EN” on the taskbar at the lower-right corner of your computer screen
Select it to toggle between language modes

否則您得作下面這幾個步驟: Otherwise,
(a)   Go to
Control Panel -> Regional and Language Options -> Languages
(b)   Select “Details“
(c)   Make sure a Chinese Keyboard Layout/IME for Input Language such as
        “Microsoft New Phonetic IME 2002a” is
added under keyboard
(d)   Check its properties to make sure the setting is proper and a desirable
  
    Keyboard Mapping is selected

假如您無法加增中文輸入鍵盤配置(公家的機器),只好安裝特別的中文軟件...
Without any native input methods added for Chinese, you will need to
install add-on software such as NJStar (
南極星) or  Twinbridge (雙橋) for
writing Chinese and doing copy/paste and so on

讀寫中文電郵
Read and Write Chinese (email)

1.    必須了解什麼是 Encoding。 所有中文字(,日,韓,...也一樣)都是經過編碼
送出再經過解碼讀入。譬如說"
22914 24847"在 BIG5 的碼表裡代表的是"如意"
這兩個字。送出時不明確指
定碼表讀入時應用不同的碼表,收件人可能
看到的是"&&$%@%$^#"

Understanding the “
Encoding”All email, particularly for those are
embedded with non-English characters, must be encoded at delivery
properly and decoded at receiving accordingly.  (1)
Improper , (2)mis-matched
and (3)
mixed encodings are common causes of unreadable/garbled texts
in the email.

2.   養成習慣: View(Format)->Encoding 明確指定碼表
最常用的繁體字碼是
Chinese Traditional [BIG5]
To read/write email in Chinese.
(a)   Your computer must be capable of displaying Chinese.
        See
電腦設定above.
(b)   When writing, Set Encoding explicitly.
      
 Chinese Traditional [BIG5] is commonly used within our comunity.
(c)   When reading, go to View -> Encoding and try to match it.
(d)  
不明確指定碼表,你送出的很可能不是你自己看到的
        送一封回給自己看看便知

        Keep in mind that what you can see may not be exactly what it will
        be sent out. It is really the sender's responsibility to encode the
        email properly


[
example:  If you use yahoo, and your friends can not read your email ]
