Issues Displaying Double-Byte Characters

When you are dealing with internationalized content, being able to display the content of your application is critical. Carefully consider the following:
Operating system
Your operating system needs to be capable of displaying double-byte characters in the system dialog boxes and menus used by your application.
Silk Test Classic
You need to be concerned about displaying your content in the Silk Test Editor and the Silk Test Classic dialog boxes.
Application under test
You need to have a font installed that is capable of displaying the content of your application. If you have multiple languages represented in your application, you will need a font that spans these languages.
If your application is web-based, make sure that you are using a browser that supports your content, that the browser is configured to display your content, and that you have the necessary fonts installed to display your application.
Complex scripts (languages)
Silk Test Classic does not support complex scripts such as the bi-directional languages Hebrew and Arabic. These are languages that require special processing to display and edit because the characters are not laid out in a simple linear progression from left to right, as are most western European characters.
