    Thanks Michael

    This is useful information. Unfortunately I usually need to use static
    HTML - so I can't use the ASP parts. It would be nice see something
    like this working on UTF-8 encoded web pages where lang is defined. In
    most cases knowing the text is a specific language and knowing the page
    is Unicode would let you know which script is being used.

    I'd also like to figure out a way to trigger this kind of behavior in
    other browsers as well as in IE (using Java Script or Java rather than
    VB) as not quite everyone uses IE - (but I guess you are not going to
    give me any more clues on how to do that :-) )


    - Chris
