Learn Chinese in China

Global IME simplified chinese/traditional chinese with MSN


Recommended Posts


I am running windows 98 on this computer and i cant get IME working in MSN 6.0, it will work in ICQ though. I have to type my chinese in Internet Explorer and then cut and paste into MSN.

My contacts that have chinese characters in their names come up as ????.

It appears MSN can view chinese characters in a chat window but they can't be typed in a chat window or be viewed/typed outside of a chat window.

I am aware that IME is only used for IE applications(on non office XP computers)...but ICQ is a chat client as well, so i am assuming that MSN should be able to run it.

Help pleeease!
