I have a survey site that has several languages on the main screen for a user to choose from.  How do I tell the browser to load Chinese symbols, but not change all the other language characters on the page?

Is there a location I can send a user to install a Chinese Language Pack for IE?

Thanks!

Put this META-tag in the page header:

<META HTTP-EQUIV="Content-Type" CONTENT="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" />

Where it says "iso-8859-1" must be changed with something I don't know what.
And here's the Office XP tool Global IME (Traditional Chinese), who people need to be able to read the text (Windows 2000, XP and Server 2003 does already contain this):

Do you know or does anyone know what the "iso-8859-1" should be?  Thanks!

There are three different for Chinese Traditional:

BIG-5
BIG-5-HKSCS
EUC-TW

I don't know who is recommended, but I would have picked the one in the middle, "BIG-5-HKSCS".
