Hello

I need to translate my site to Georgian language. The problem is that on Windows XP Georgian font is not recognized/displayed. If i ctrl+c some text from web page f.x. http://shalva.comweb.nl/test.php and paste it on Skype, then hit enter to send message i see only squeres in conversation window insead of georgian letters. Same story if i paste it to notepad etc. When i make the same on Windows 7 everything is ok.

I've installed 100 additional georgian fonts but nothing has changed. The only way to see georgian letters instead of squares is to change Skype font to Sylfaen when on Windows 7 default Tahoma is enough to work perfect.

Thanks in advance for any help

The Georgian Font group needs the Sylfaen.ttf to work properly on XP ...
Windows 7 might have this installed by default.

Problem solved!

The solution is to install additional keyboard/language support which is build-in as feature to WinXP.
What you need to do has been listed below :

1. Go to Control Panel ---> Regional and language options ---> Languages ---> Mark install files for east Asian languages
2. Put WinXP cd to your cd-drive to copy additional files.
3. Restart your PC
3. Go to Control Panel ---> Regional and language options ---> Languages ---> Details ---> Add --> Input language : Georgian, keyboard layout/IME : Georgian (Lat)
4. Go to Control Panel ---> Regional and language options ---> Languages ---> Details ---> Advanced ---> Mark Exten support of advanced text services to all programs
