The short answer is yes. You must use the English spelling for
HTML tags since the DTD defines them that way. non-English chars
are represented by HTML(sgml) entities such as &ntilde; or the
8-bit char. The character set used for a particular page can be defined
by a META statement. Alis Technologies has a browser called Tango
that will supply the necessary fonts and keyboards for many-many
languages. That means you can use English Windows 95 and browser
non-English pages.
