    Hi, I uploaded some UTF-8 Unicode fonts in the font folder of the ipot so that I can read some webpages that is not english. But unfortunately, still can't read those webpages. Does anybody have any idea, why that's not woking? Do I have to edit also .plist file in the font folder? Any solution with using user defined fonts?

    from past iPod hacking experiences I believe that the UTF-8 stuff has to be recoded In some form of hex. I may be wrong but I have a faint memory of having to do that when it ce to font editing on the old iPods.

    Safari is encoded in UTF-8. So that's not the problem. But still can't figure out what I need to do to see webpages in languages other than English. Anybody got any clue yet?

    This will get problem on receiving email. All email commonly encoded in Big5 cannot be read. But on-the-other-hands, iPod touch do well support on non-unicode Japanese ShiftJIS encode...

    I think there would cause coding problem if the non-English web page doesn't well declare its encode in header. Mobile Safari have no interface for user to change encode.
