What a great news that Web Matrix Reloaded was official launched!
However, I saw a thread about using languages other then English in the ASP.NET Forum recently, and I open my WM and try to stimulate it when seeing this post.
I typed some characters in WM in the Design View as:
Then, it display nice on browser:
So, I replied a "OK" message to the corresonding thread. However, I saw a reply from the same member and try to do it again, then I face some difficulty.

Yes, it's a Known Issue for WM as stated on the Release Note of WM:
Fixed-Width DBCS characters do not display correctly
- Support for DBCS characters is not implemented yet.

Yes, it's not anything new as I searched that Brain have already replied it in the Bug Report Forum and a couple of posts and discussion have been raised about using non-English in the Web Matrix Forum in the past:
- Still have problem with Chinese on WM0.6
- If you ere chinese,pls enter in
- why web matrix does not support chinese(GB2312)
- don't support the Chinese char in the code view
- Why doesn't WebMatrox support Chinese?
- Can Not write Chinese??
- missing central european characters
Personally, I believe quite a lot of Chinese and Japanese were using this FREE tool. I'm not sure it's the cultural, social or financial issue, but using non-English character seem a pretty nice feature request to the WM Project Team. :)
Anyway, WM Reloaded contain many cool feature and bug fix and I'll blog more about WM Reloaded later. :)
