Character sets

About this task

Bear in mind that browsers used by Sterling Configurator Visual Modeler users must support the character sets required to display the data correctly. If your implementation of the Sterling Configurator Visual Modeler manages data from non-ASCII character sets, then make sure that the browser is set to support Unicode characters.

In particular, make sure that dialog boxes use fonts that support these characters. On Windows systems, this is set using the Display Properties control panel applet.

To enable your browser to support character sets, perform the following steps:


  1. Select Start - > Settings - > Control Panel, and start the Display applet. Alternatively, right click the Desktop background and select Properties.
  2. Click Appearance.
  3. Select Message Box from the Item drop-down list.
  4. Select a Unicode font, for example Arial Unicode MS.
  5. Click Apply.
