Dear Sir or Madame,
Until now, we have not set the character code for this forum (it was the visitor who should choose the best encoding). Because many contributors posted directly Japanese words/texts, many people were complaining of being unable to read them. So we have decided to set all the forum to Shift Jis encoding. Those who are still unable to display correctly the pages are invited to go to Japanese anime & manga to find the solution
Sorry to French users. You are now forced to use only Alphabet characters. Though we could use, instead of Shift_Jis, Unicode encoding that should allow to mix all the characters on the same document, there may appear another glitch, i.e. not all the browsers nor search engines support Unicode encoding. So the choice of Shift_Jis, the most popular Japanese character code, should be our minimum compromise.
Have a good browse
