Specifying Character Encoding for Targets
In ePublisher, encoding refers to the character encoding method used to convert bytes into characters. Programs use encoding when they display HTML documents. Documents in English and most other Western European languages typically use the widely supported character encoding UTF-8. If you are producing output localized for other languages, such as Japanese, Korean, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, Greek, Turkish, or Eastern European, Cyrillic, or Baltic languages, you must specify the correct encoding for each target for which you generate output.
Ensure the encoding you specify when you generate your output matches the encoding used in the environment where your output will be posted. For example, if your output will be posted on a web server, the encoding you specify when you generate your output should match the encoding used on the web server. If your output and the computer or web server hosting your output do not use the same character encoding method, some characters may not display correctly when users view your output.
To specify character encoding for a target
On the Project menu, select the target next to Active Target for which you want to specify settings.
On the Target menu, click Target Settings. You must have target modification permissions to modify target settings. For more information, see “Customizing Target Settings” on page 339.
Under Locale, specify the appropriate value for the Encoding setting. For more information about the encoding setting values, click Help.
