Hi-ya

I am populating a tree with some values taken from DMOZ, which have
russian, japanese, hebrew, etc character sets. I am using a contenthandler
and labelhandler.

The original was encoded as utf-8.

As far as I know all I have to do is pass these strings and I should be
able to see them, no? I see only rubbish for the ones written in other
languages. Funnily enough for Hebrew characters most of the characters
come out?!

I have tried to convert to utf-16 but that didn't work.

Have I corrupted the file maybe?

thanks

kent

What platform? Do the strings print properly to the console?

You need to make sure you have a font that can display the characters.

Look at:

Window -> Preferences -> General -> Colors and Fonts -> Debug -> Console
Font
