Hi. I'm trying to view a php file written in English but with strings of Korean words in dreamweaver cs4. The Korean words look like gibberish. How do I make dreamweaver show them correctly?
Open Preferences from the Edit menu (Windows) or Dreamweaver menu (Mac), and select New Document. Set Default encoding to Korean, and make sure the checkbox labelled "Use when opening existing files that don't specify an encoding" is selected.
The problem with doing that is that all your files will be stored using Korean encoding.
The alternative is to open the file, and then select Modify > Page properties. In the Title/Encoding section, select Korean. You need to do this each time you open a file, but it preserves your default encoding for all other files.
Thanks, that worked! I tried the second method you suggested. I don't want all my files to have the Korean encoding. This was a really frustrating problem for me. Thanks again.
