Configuring Internet Explorer to Properly Display Unicode

In general, we recommend that visitors to TIMEA use Firefox to view all texts, since Internet Explorer's support for Unicode (the standard used to encode characters in all languages) can be spotty. However, you can configure Internet Explorer to render the characters in TIMEA texts properly by following these steps:

  1. Go to the Tools menu and choose Internet Options
  2. Select the Fonts button near the bottom of the window
  3. In the Fonts window, select "Latin based" from the pull-down menu for "Language Script." Next, select "Arial Unicode MS" from the pull-down menu for "Web page font."

  4. Click OK.
  5. Now click on the Accessibility button in the Internet options window.
  6. Under "Formatting," check "Ignore font styles specified on web pages," then click OK.
  7. Click OK under "Internet Options." You should now be able to view all characters in TIMEA without trouble.
