Problem displaying Hindi font

1 New Member
I'm trying to use an html form to upload foreign language translations of English terms into a MySQL database. Since many different languages will be entered on the page, I have read that I should set the charset on my uploading page as follows: <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">

This has worked great for many different languages, including: Arabic, Spanish, Mandarin, etc. Basically, I have all the translations in a Word doc and simply copy and paste them one at a time into a text box in the html form and then hit a submit button to upload them to a field in the database table of type 'blob'. I have been able to pull these translations from the database and display on the web without any problem, except I can't get the Hindi terms to work.

The font I'm copying from the Word doc is 'Kruti Dev 010'. When I copy the translation from the Word doc and paste it into the text box in my form, it turns to gibberish, i.e. 'iw.kZ U;wVªksfQy la[;k'. How is it that every other language works except for Hindi? The weird thing is that I have found Hindi text displayed on various websites which I am able to copy and paste successfully into my text box. I just can't copt and paste successfully from my Word doc.

I've been searching the web for hours and am at a loss. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hi, I just seen the web site of the unicode committee and was amazed to see the site showing document in Hindi without using any such fonts like "Kruti Dev" or "Dev Lys". "Webdunia.com" is also showing documents in Hindi without the need to download any specific font. How's that done? Also, can I build such a page?

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".

Here is my compilation command: g++-12 -std=c++20 -Wnarrowing bit_field.cpp Here is the code in...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
