I m developing a website in ASP.Net and entering chinese words through application and using Oracle as a backend.

I m doing following things to achieve this:

1. Using nvarchar datatype for a column of a table.
2. Also in a master page added one tag.
in head i ve added one attribute, charset = utf8
3. I ve installed chinese font in my computer.

From oracle i can successfully enter chinese but from front end it is stored as '????' somewhat in this format.

When you debug your solution, look at the strings which were entered in the frontend: do they look like correct chinese, or just "????"?

It looks like, Japanese MUI is not installed on the system, hence you see '????'
