    Phong,

    Try adding a "character set" to your web page to specify what type of characters you're using.

    One of the following should work
    Code:
    <meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=Big5"> 
    <meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=iso-2022"> 
    <meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8">
    The first is the character set for Big5 Chinese characters (Modern Chinese), the second is the ISO character set for Traditional Chinese, and the last is Unicode, which supports all character sets. Try the last one first, if that doesn't work, try the others out.

    Hope it works!

    Also,

    If you're going to add Chinese characters, you should probably edit your page using Notepad, and save it in Unicode format. I'm not sure, but Dreamweaver might modify DBCS characters.

    He's using a Mac; the closest thing is TextEdit, not Notepad.

    Any text editor that supports unicode should be sufficient
