charset issue

Postby webdev » 7:30am, Mon 13 May, 2013

I am working with multi languages in my site.
Currently i am using European languages like Danish, Sweden, and German etc.
And iam using below meta tag for showing the European special characters:
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1" />

I need to include Korean language in my site. So, need to user utf-8 to show the korean charaters.
I am using the below meta tag:
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />

Now i need to show both European and Korean languages in one page.
Which charset need to use for this issue?

Thanks in advance...

There is a lot of misinformation floating around about the support of Chinese, Japanese and Korean (CJK) characters. The Unicode Standard supports all of the CJK characters from JIS X 0208, JIS X 0212, JIS X 0221, or JIS X 0213, for example, and many more. This is true no matter which encoding form of Unicode is used: UTF-8, UTF-16, or UTF-32.
