Normally we have been using Firefox (FF) but apparently the language pack won't work with the versions of FF that Puppy supports. I think the language pack needs 18.0 or higher.
Or is there another way with FF ?
I don't recall ever needing a language pack anyway.
What this is for is for my wife who is Korean and she likes to watch Korean drama on REDSPOT.TV.

I have been trying others like Puppybrowser and Opera, and FF with no luck.
I guess I will try Chrome and see how it handles it. Hmmm, I see Google Chrome and Chromium, now to research the difference. I also would like a bare bones browser to match the speed of Puppy, which is very impressive.

We don't really want the ability to input Korean, only to display the correct characters when they are displayed.

I have tried Chromium and it still won't display Korean characters correctly.
I am going to try Google Chrome and see what it does.
As I recall, when I had Ubuntu running on this box, the Korean pages displayed just fine with Firefox. No special addons, etc

And what does Seamonkey do ?
I see under View->character encoding->eastAsian-> about 3 Korean choices and when I select it I don't see any change ,I will restart the browser -no don't see any change , perhaps its only on Korean pages .

Leave me a link to a Korean page and I'll experiment
