International Phonetic Alphabet. The International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA)[note 1] is an alphabetic system of phonetic notation based primarily on the Latin alphabet.
It was devised by the International Phonetic Association as a standardized representation of the sounds of oral language. The IPA is used by lexicographers, foreign language students and teachers, linguists, speech-language pathologists, singers, actors, constructed language creators, and translators. History Since its creation, the IPA has undergone a number of revisions. After major revisions and expansions in 1900 and 1932, the IPA remained unchanged until the IPA Kiel Convention in 1989.
Extensions to the IPA for speech pathology were created in 1990 and officially adopted by the International Clinical Phonetics and Linguistics Association in 1994.

Trail: Internationalization (The Java™ Tutorials) The lessons in this trail teach you how to internationalize Java applications.
Internationalized applications are easy to tailor to the customs and languages of end users around the world. Note: This tutorial trail covers core internationalization functionality, which is the foundation required by additional features provided for desktop, enterprise, and mobile applications. For additional information, see the Java Internationalization home page. Introduction defines the term internationalization, gives a quick sample program, and provides a checklist you can use to internationalize an existing program. Setting the Locale explains how to create and how to use Locale objects. Isolating Locale-Specific Data shows how to dynamically access objects that vary with Locale. Trail: Internationalization: Table of Contents (The Java™ Tutorials) C I18N FAQ: Déclaration du codage de caractères utilisé dans un fichier CSS. Using @charset As mentioned above, you should only use this when the style sheet and the calling HTML file are in different encodings.
It is important to understand that, although the @charset declaration looks like a CSS at-rule, it is not parsed as such for detection of the character encoding. Only an exact byte sequence, beginning with the very first byte in the style sheet, will be effective. Variations, even those that would be valid for a normal at-rule with the same syntax, are silently ignored. To set the character encoding inside the style sheet, use the following sequence of bytes, apart from the , at the very start of the file, one byte per character. @charset ""; The is case-insensitive, but should always be utf-8 for new style sheets. Only one @charset byte sequence may appear in an external style sheet and it must appear at the very start of the document.
Note! A tutorial on character code issues. This document tries to clarify the concepts of character repertoire, character code, and character encoding especially in the Internet context.
It specifically avoids the term character set, which is confusingly used to denote repertoire or code or encoding. ASCII, ISO 646, ISO 8859 (ISO Latin, especially ISO Latin 1), Windows character set, ISO 10646, UCS, and Unicode, UTF-8, UTF-7, MIME, and QP are used as examples. This document in itself does not contain solutions to practical problems with character codes (but see section Further reading). Rather, it gives background information needed for understanding what solutions there might be, what the different solutions do - and what's really the problem in the first place.
If you are looking for some quick help in using a large character repertoire in HTML authoring, see the document Using national and special characters in HTML.

One World, One Character Set I've spent enough time solving internationalization problems that can be very time consuming bugs to track down.
Unicode Home Page. End-to-end internationalization of Web applications - Java World. A typical Web application workflow involves a user loading one of your Webpages into her browser, filling out HTML form parameters, and submitting data back to the server.
The server makes decisions based on this data, sends the data to other components such as databases and Web services, and renders a response back to the browser. At each step along the way, a globally aware application must pay attention to the user's locale and the text's character encoding. The JDK provides many facilities to enable an internationalized workflow from within your Java code, and the Apache Struts framework extends it even further. However, you must still take particular care when managing how data gets into your application code and how your application interacts with other components in an internationalized manner. It is at the interfaces where enabling internationalization is thinly documented and supported.

John O'Conner's Blog: Charset Pitfalls in JSP/Servlet Containers. Posted by joconner on July 27, 2005 at 1:13 PM PDT The J2SE platform has come a long way in internationalization.
Some things are just easy...like entering your name in a Swing text field regardless of whether your name is John, JosÃ©, or ç”°ä¸ (Tanaka). Unicode prevails within the Java core. Unfortunately, entering non-ASCII text in the J2EE world isn't nearly as easy. I've been playing around with various web servers recently, paying special attention to how browsers communicate non-ASCII text via GET and POST HTTP commands.

Unicode est un standard informatique qui permet des échanges de textes dans différentes langues, à un niveau mondial. Il est développé par le Consortium Unicode, qui vise à permettre le codage de texte écrit en donnant à tout caractère de n'importe quel système d'écriture un nom et un identifiant numérique, et ce de manière unifiée, quelle que soit la plate-forme informatique ou le logiciel. Ce standard est lié à la norme ISO/CEI 10646 qui en est un sur-ensemble. Developing Multilingual Web Applications Using JavaServer Pages Technology. Internationalization (i18n) Gurus: Home.
