Unicode in Illustrator/Photoshop

Posted on 2007-10-01

I've been trying to work on a graphic in Illustrator/Photoshop, using Khmer (Cambodian) text.  After a few weeks, someone told me something about Uniscribe.  Well, it turns out that when I go to Wikipedia to copy the phrase for "Country of Cambodia" in the Khmer text and paste it into Word, it comes out as it should.  Illustrator, Photoshop, and the browser (IE and Firefox), all displays it incorrectly.  How do I fix this problem?

    AFAIK, for writing in other languages, you must have the proper language package for Adobe products.....for example, for writing arabic, i had to buy the Middle East version, regardless of the fact that i was used to write arabic without any issues using office products.

    same goes for the browser support, look at the encoding of that wiki page....if they are using UTF-8 then you should also encode your pages using the same......and it should translate the language properly in the browsers.
