And so it starts... : LUSENET : CBF West Web Site : One Thread

And so I'll put the first message here with a welcome to all of you. I insist that this be a fun experience for you.

Currently, I'm hosting the development site on a Linux-based computer in my basement. It is linked to the internet via DSL.

A few initial questions are in order: How did the CBF meeting go? What was the outcome and what's next? Who else should be included in this endeavor?

re:our last conversation

At our last conversation, we talked at length about issues relating to the display of foreign languages on a webpage.

Can you list for us the languages we should try to support?

The list of languages from Richard...

Richard wrote back and I'm copying here:

My thoughts are Spanish, Portuguese, Cantonese, Japanese, Korean, Arabic. What do you think? Richard

(Jimmy) so I guess the question is how are these languages displayed on web pages? I would think that the Spanish and Portuguese would be through the correct character set. But I also noticed that there are character sets for Cantonese, Japanese and Korean. I haven't figured out yet how they display or how you build characters yet. That site on unicode... has blurbs on character sets and I'll want to delve deeper to find out how to tell the web browser to use a particular character set

who is...web developer from OR or WA?

Glen mentioned that there was someone located in Washington or Oregon that was in web development. Do yyou recall who that was? If so, shouldn't we pull him into this discussion forum too?

Multi-ligual issues...

One area where we need comment on is how different languages are displayed. The only way I know of is using images that contain the characters. But of course, I have no experience in this. It would be nice if someone did some research and reported in this forum :):). I'll keep looking for some examples.

P.S. One nice site that has alot of information is . It is a site dedicated to web development, training and techniques.

Netscape's International Browser Versions

This link is to Netscape's download site for International versions of their browser's. It might be a good link to have on our site since language specific browsers would be of interest to our churches.
