Why Does this Web Page Exist:

As part of my job, I need to type things into a Japanese VMware image, and it is easy to bring up this page in a web browser then Copy/Paste.

 

Hello in several languages:

Hello

여보세요 (Korean)

こんにちは (Japanese)

Backspace in Unicode and ASCII is "08" and looks like:   <end>

 

Why Do My Japanese (or Korean) Characters Show Up as Squares?

SOLUTION: Go to "Control Panels"->"Fonts"->"Font Settings" ---> Uncheck the "Hide fonts based on language settings"  (Then Reboot)

Very annoyingly, this checkbox will somehow become set incorrectly for you in the future. 

My Korean Characters STILL Show Up as Squares: Delete C:\Windows\System32\FNTCACHE.dat and reboot

 

 

That's it!
