NETSCAPE 4.7 FONT PREFERENCES
This is fixed-width type
If you go to a site written in a non-English script, but see a series of English nonsense words and punctuation, or a set of question marks, try these steps.
For some Web sites, such as www.csssm.org, you will need to manually switch from Western encoding view to the Chinese Traditional encoding.
Some Web sites, such as directory.google.com/Top/World/Chinese_Simplified/, specify a font which may not be available on your machine. This problem is prevalent on the Macintosh.
To view the Web site, you need to override the font of the Web page. To override a font, open the font preferences panel (Edit » Preferences select Fonts in panel), then turn on the radio button for Use my fonts, overriding page-specified fonts.
