How do I download and install a non-Roman alphabet font?
I pulled up a web page that was supposed to be in Greek, but the text was gibberish. I checked the Firefox Add-ons page called "Dictionaries and Language Packs". While virtually all the languages listed had dictionaries, far fewer had language packs. I checked the Knowledge Base and Forum, and didn't see any problem like mine listed. I also went to Tools --> Options --> Content --> Languages, and added on several languages, then rebooted. No improvement. I don't know where to go from here. Can anyone advise? Thanks.

Can you post a link?
Which encoding is selected in "Firefox > Web Development" or "View" > Character Encoding ?
Cor-el: My apologies for not responding sooner. Here's a link to the problem site: http://classic-web.archive.org/web/20080529041237/http://www.greekgeek.org/
On the left side of the screen, click on "Pharr's Homeric Greek". You will then see a list of lessons on the right side. Click on, say, Lesson 1. As you will note, most of the text on the page is in Chinese characters, with a number of non-alphabetic symbols thrown in.
The encoding is set at "Unicode (UTF-8)". Any thoughts you might wish to share would be most welcome. Thanks!
The page on the right side are opened in a frame.
Did you check "This Frame" > "View Frame Info" to see the encoding of that frame ?
Here's what "View Frame Info" showed for the table of contents page:

Hope this helps. Thanks !
Can you attach a screenshot?
Use a compressed image type like PNG or JPG to save the screenshot and make sure that you do not exceed the maximum file size (1 MB).
I hope this works (I've never done a screenshot before). The uploaded image should be just below this text area. I couldn't figure out how to get rid of the Help screen on the far right of the image.
Thanks for your help.
That is a problem with that web page.
Decoded it looks like this:
Is there anything I can do to correct the situation? Thanks.
It looks like it's happening on every page...*sigh*... Also, I'm not positive that the site is being maintained any more. But I'll see if there's anyone there I can communicate with.
Thanks for all your help and advice, Cor-el -- I really appreciate your taking the time to investigate this!
