Generated Collision Detection report (.htm) file entries do not display correctly for non-English characters.

The HTML file created from the Detect Collision dialog box reporting uses an embedded unicode header (UTF-8).

This universal header tag allows you to select the locale/encoding in your selected internet browser for the region in which you live. This character encoding browser setting displays the correct language character set for your selected region.

For example, in Internet Explorer 9, click View > Encoding > More > [language], and select the required language. This allows you to see the correct character set for the generated collision detection .htm file.

See the documentation provided by your web browser software for more information on encoding and language settings.
