Adding Code page 936 for proper display of Chinese characters

Windows Code page 936 is Microsoft’s character encoding for simplified Chinese. There are a number of Code Page 936 references. The most common is the Microsoft CP936. This corresponds to the IANA “GBK” font. To properly display simplified Chinese characters in eFORMz, add the following reference in your FontSpecs_User.xml:

<CharacterSet Name="CP936" IANARegistryName="GBK"  >
</CharacterSet>

For more on adding fonts to eFORMz using FontSpecs_User.xml, view the following resource: Adding a Font to eFORMz. eFORMz supports multibyte character sets (MBCS) for various language requirements.
