    Ive recently tried accesing some pdf files via safari on my ipod and found out that even the pdfs on apples japan page cannot be displayed on the Touch - was wondering if anyone can confirm this issue. would like to know if this is a general problem the Touch has, sicne i have no use for it if it doesnt fully support japanese reading/writing

    ( same pdf worked on my pc without any problems and a small test pdf with japanese text i sent to my Mail showed up ok too )

    Example for a pdf woudl be : http://manuals.info.apple.com/ja/ipod_touch_product_info_guide.pdf

    youre rigth, those links dont seem to be displaying japanese characters. Safari can definitely display japanese (i have no problem with yahoo japan for example) and i can read emails in japanese. so it must be something with those pdfs

    I had that with another site too, only there i couldn't even open one file but could display the next one wthout a problem.

    I also tried downloading the linked pdf and sent it to my mail account to view it on teh touch - same issues when trying to display it.
    I dont think anything is wrong with the pdfs on apples support site. I mean if those don't display corectly then which ones do. I only noticed by accident since i never thought with all the support apple has with showing webpages and IME they would have issues displaying japanese characters in a pdf file
