MS. Windows XP IE can't recognize Arabic Encoding.‎
Posted on 2005-05-14
I can't read the Arabic letters received in my inbox. The letters appear as junk.
I made these changes to solve this problem:
1) Supplemental language support installed (control panel \ regional settings)
2) In IE, View menu / Encoding / Auto Select selected.
3) In IE, Tools menu / Internet option / Languages Arabic moved to upper.
But still I have problem to read Arabic letters. I need to manually select Arabic encoding for every Arabic letters. I am using Windows XP- sp2
Please send a solution immediately. I don’t have any problem when I receive the same letter in gmail account. Besides this I tried Netscape 7.2, Netscape 8 (beta) and Mozill Firefox 1.0.4 browsers but all browsers are displaying same. So I think it is not problem related to IE. what U think ? Moreover I don't have any problem when I navigate through Arabic web sites.
My question is this: Why IE doesn't recognize Arabic encoding (automatically) when I read my hotmail mails.
I upgraded my Manager's PC (98 to Win xp-sp2.). After this this reading problem started. He was able to read his Arabic mails from his good old 98(SE.)
So what is wrong now?
Is there any patch available to solve this issue?
