  2. You need to install East Asian language support, found in Regional and
    Language Options in Control Panel. You'll need your XP Home install CD,
    or access to the i386 folder, to install the fonts.

  3. Greetings Mic,

    To add support for this you just need to engage the International Support within Windows. To
    do so, assuming you're using Windows XP, click Start, then Run, type "intl.cpl" and click OK.

    When the Regional and Language Options dialog appears, click the Languages tab, then under
    Supplemental language support, click both checkboxes and click OK.
