To use these exercises you must have a Central European (CE) font and keyboard installed on your computer. For Windows 95 and above this is provided by Microsoft. For the newest versions of Windows, do the following: Go to "Control Panel" and double-click on "Regional Options". Choose the tab entitled "General". Towards the bottom are the language settings. Check "Central Europe" and choose "ok." On older versions, Simply go to "Control Panel," choose "Add/Remove Programs," choose the "Windows Setup" tab and enable "Multilanguage Support."
Also, don't forget to install a keyboard. For newer versions of Windows, installation of keyboards is also located in "Regional Options." For older versions, double-click on the "Keyboard" icon in the "Control Panel." Go to Language and choose the one you need. You will have to restart the computer for the changes to take effect. The keyboard layout provided is based upon the typewriter layout used in each language.
For Mac users, if CE support is not already available on your computer, simply go to the AATSEEL Mac CE page and get the Apple CE fonts and George Fowler's CE keyboards.
The exercises are written in code page 1250 also known as Windows CE or Windows 1250. I have written these pages to load this characters set automatically. If the correct characters do not appear, go to the View menu of Netscape Navigator or Internet Explorer and change either the character set or the encoding to this option. Once you have a CE font and keyboard installed and you have your web browser set up properly, you should have no problem with these exercises.
