Display Japanese Character (UTF-8) on Netbeans

At the moment, I have a project modifying Ec-Cube eCommerce, Ec Cube is PHP eCommerce using Smarty as template engine. And mostly on the UI using japanese text, as information for you I develop all of them using Netbeans as an IDE.

But I have a problem, my Netbeans 7.3 can not display japanese (unicode) character, I know it have to set into UTF-8, but where I have to set?

#3 Solution

I suddenly laugh when I read this thread Square symbols instead of unicode characters, I realize my mistake, then I check font setting of my Netbeans it is used Consolas, then I change into Monospaced.

And voila! I can see japanese character on my netbeans. :D
