      Hi Michel,


      You can add more language sets to your fonts from the Fonts section of Design. Adding a language set will load the necessary symbols and encodings to supported fonts.


      To add font language sets: From the left side of the Editor, click the Design icon > click Fonts > click Language Support > check the box next to the relevant language set > click OK.


      Once you add a new language set, you can see which fonts support your language by editing text and choosing a font from the text editor bar.

      To learn more, click here.


      Let us know if you need more help.

      Kind regards, Etti - Wix Support

      Hi Etti,
      The language settings are right. I'm define it in an other way.
      How can I use the ascii codes? Because when I use the
      keyboard key combination, the ascii code do not work.
      I have try this on Linux and osx (Apple)

      Thank you in advance

      The HTML Editor supports all languages and special characters that are supported by UTF8.

      Simply type in any language you wish. The Editor supports whatever language you have installed on the computer's operating system so make sure your computer supports the language you wish to type in and just go ahead and type wherever text is editable on your site.


      If you wish to add additional symbols that are not available on the keyboard, you can copy the symbols from this Unicode table, and paste it in your text.


      If you encounter further difficulties, please let us know.

      Best regards, Boris

      Hi Boris,

      Okay, than I think it's Google Chrome where the problem is. Copying from the internet I already did.

      I have the answer. Thanks for your support.

      Best regards
