你好!Hi!

I wish to create an HTML/CSS/JS website, on which pages I can write both in English and Chinese caracters (international project around Chinese market).

In DW, I have to choose between "UTF-8" for roman letters and two other alternative options for simplified (汉字) or traditional (漢字) Chinese caracters.

Here is my question : what do I have to choose in order to / how can can I write mixed HTML pages with both Chinese and English content on the same page?

Thanx for your insights 🙂      = 谢谢!

There is a lot of misinformation floating around about the support of Chinese, Japanese and Korean (CJK) characters. The Unicode Standard (UTF-8) supports all of the CJK characters from JIS X 0208, JIS X 0212, JIS X 0221, or JIS X 0213, for example, and many more.

Thank you Ben for your answer. Do you confirm UTF-8 will allow me to display Chinese caracters on an HTML webpage *and* also perform some treatments in JavaScript on text inputs that would be typed in Chinese caracters? I wrote such a JavaScript routine in a former project (without DW though, I coded directly from scratch in the TextEditor (Brackets), and I encountered problems when using UTF-8 encoding on top of my HTML code. Additionally, if UTF-8 fully supports Chinese caracters, what would be the use of the additional options for Chinese caracters encoding?

If you find that UTF-8 does not work for you, try using UTF-16 instead. The reason that I did not mention the latter in my previous post is because UTF-16 requires 2 more bytes, making it slightly more bloated, yet more flexible.
