CityDesk and Asian language


I'm trying to make a site in English and in Japanese. The English site is my primary language.

My problem is when I input Japanese acticle. CityDesk keep them on the screen until I save and close the article. Then, when I reopen the same acticle, all the Japanese characters are transformed into question marks "?". Those characters are really question marks and not Japanese characters with the wrong display. That make CityDesk unusable in Japanese.

I seen some people have the same problem as me, but didn't see a solution.
Anyone has one?

I using Windows 2000 in English with the Japanses IME to input the japanese characters. And of course I'm using the latest version of CD 1.0.31. SP2

We don't support non-Latin languages yet.

The next release (for which the beta will be released UNBELIEVABLY SOON) will support any Unicode language and indeed our testers are already publishing in Japanese.
