DHTML Menu Studio FAQ

Question ID:
Q3045
Question:
Will the program work with other character sets / languages using special characters or another alphabet?
 
The program will work with any character sets. If you want to use other encodings (e.g. UTF-8), all you need is to specify the encoding using the tag, e.g.:
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8">
You should insert this meta tag in the head section of the webpage containing the menu. You can use a template file in order to have the program add this code for you automatically. When entering menu item texts, you will also need to use the same encoding. The best thing to do is use character entities, e.g. &uuml; instead of ü. For non-latin characters, you can also enter them in form of &#xxx;
Please note that if you want bitmap-based menus to accept other encodings, you will need to add a new integer value to the system registry (HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Xtreeme/DHTMLMenuStudio/Settings) named Codepage. You can do this using the registry editor (regedit.exe). The value of this integer can be found e.g. in the encoding table here in the 'code page' column (e.g.28592 for the ISO-8859-2 character set).
