Uft-8 Internet For NeoBook

Post by fkapnist » Mon Mar 27, 2017 12:25 pm

The Unicode (& UTF-8) language code makes many foreign language characters readable to modern browsers.

Because Neobook does not support Unicode, the "Uft-8 Internet For NeoBook" program was created to help authors download foreign language character codes in real time (or "on-the-fly") for their Neobook publications and elsewhere.

Uft-8 Internet For NeoBook uses a JavaScript snippet of code to search for online text (metadata) in a web page and then correctly displays it in Neobook. With no prior hint or indication of what language it will be in, a foreign text string is downloaded from the Internet (usually a page title) in real-time and is automatically viewed in Neobook.

THIS METHOD EXPANDS NEOBOOK'S INTERNET CAPABILITY TO READ AROUND 90% OF THE WORLD'S WEB PAGES (which use Unicode characters).

A program for/with Neobook that helps with real-time foreign text (Unicode) Internet displays in Neobook publications.

This method also allows you to save foreign language character strings in plain INI files, rather than in your critical Windows Registry.

This method bypasses the usual heavy coding and decoding of UTF-8 characters because it converts foreign text to simple numbers instead of tricky Ascii escape codes, which may sometimes conflict with delimiter-separated values, database fields, and program execution.

Grab a metadata foreign character string from the Internet - a web page title for example - and correctly display it in your Neobook pub.
