Installing Korean Font

Guest

I'm running Win XP .. trying to install Korean fonts into the computer. I
have installed the East Asian Languages in the Region and Languages setup. I
can now switch to type Korean font and the webpages will automatically encode
as well .. BUT...

the icons on desktop are not translated. . its just garbled.. the titlebar
on all webpages are garbled .. and system messages that come up from korean
websites are not translated either ..

what am I missing?

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks,
Mike

What you're missing is a Korean version of Windows.

Using an English version, with fonts for foreign languages extends the font
base in the system, it allows the system to properly render the characters
for that language. It cannot however 'translate' from langauge A to language
B.

Well, I know it is possible, because I had it before on my other hard drive
... and on this current computer I can at least "translate" the garbled stuff
on the title bars of my webpages .. but still can't see the titles of the
icons and system messages ..

I have done it before on Win XP without installing any additional software
... I just don't know what it was that I did...

Thanks for the reply though,
Mike
