      And continues to say:

      זה סינית לי

      which means literally "That's Chinese to me."

      Go figure.

      Most OS can support multilingual input by adding keyboard drivers to your user profile in system settings.

      In OSX drivers should already be installed and you just select the languages you want to use from System Preferences -> Languages and text. When you have multiple input languages installed an icon will appear (or you can add) to the status bar to toggle between them or you can use the keyboard shortcut to toggle.

      From OSX 10, multilingual suport was added to Mac, previous versions needed language version OS and fonts, or to install them.

      In Windows NT4 or XP you need the Asian Language Service Pack from MS.

      In Windows Vista, 7 or 8 the drivers should be already installed or can be from the disk or downloaded from MS and install/select by:

      Right click the toobar
      Select Language Bar and select from the drop-down, or:

      Open Control PanelRegional Settings -> Region & Language -> Keyboards & Languages -> Change Keyboards -> Installed Services -> Add ... and then select the languages you want and OK.

      When you have multiple languages installed the Language Bar segment should appear on the right side of the Toolbar or you can right click to add it. You can toggle between languages using the Language bar or keyboard shortcuts.

      From Windows Vista multilingual support was added to the Windows kernel, prior versions needed add-in modules and fonts or language specific versions (versions prior to NT4/XP).

      The fact you can read and copy Chinese in your browser suggests everything you need is installed and just needs adding to your user profile.

      Prior to DK 4.0, Daily Kos had lousy multilingual support with unpredictable results after hitting the post button. The new platform seems to have solved these problems.

      Which is good because we have so many languages in occasional use.
