This page explains how to ensure that a plain text (.txt) file is saved in an appropriate Unicode formatting. Saving a plain text document file as Unicode will allow you to use the text across multiple platforms and systems with minimal formatting changes. This is especially important if the text will be placed on the Web, either within the document or included in a Web page.

Note: Before you can use any of these packages, all the proper keyboards and fonts must be installed and activated for each script.

Switch Keyboards or Use Codes

1. Open a blank file.
2. Switch your keyboards to the appropriate script or input appropriate symbol codes.
