I'm building a site that needs to show text in English or Chinese. I have a LoadVars that calls a PHP script which returns the user's country (based on IP and the ip2country database). I have a variable in action script which is used in a dynamic text field. If I switch the variable from containing English text to Chinese text, how can I make that display properly in Flash? I cant rely on the user having that font installed as the flash allows them to manually change their country.

thanks in advance for any advice

You should really go by the language preference send out by the browser in it's request headeres - not the ip, which will lead to the wrong language being selected for a lot of people. Or whatever the equivalent in flash...

otherwise, I have no input for you - people will need the appropriate font to display chinese characters.
So does it actually work if the font is installed? Or is there a different problem ?

Anyone requesting data with a Chinese language encoding will have the appropriate font data to display the character codes for that language, like TP say, better to use this than I.P. address. What If I was a tourist in a net cafe in China or vice versa?
