Microsoft Internet Explorer version 3.0 and later does not support Chinese traditional or simplified character sets.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in Microsoft Internet Explorer versions 3.0, 3.0a, and 3.01a for Macintosh. We are researching this problem and will post new information here in the Microsoft Knowledge Base as it becomes available.


Apple Computer produces the following two Chinese language kits for the Macintosh:

  • Simplified Chinese Language Kit version 1.1
  • Traditional Chinese Language Kit version 1.1

As of May 1997, there is a Chinese Language Kit Updater disk that updates both language kits to version 1.1.1, and a WorldScript Updater disk that updates WorldScript technology to version 1.1. These disk are available from Apple Computer. Even with these language kits installed, Internet Explorer does not display Web pages with Chinese character sets.

The third-party products discussed in this article are manufactured by a vendor independent of Microsoft; we make no warranty, implied or otherwise, regarding these products' performance or reliability.
