Korean on the PB 301?

Hey folks, I have a 301+ and was attempting to read some Korean language .doc files last night. They all opened, but I got nothing but block characters and question marks all over the place. I've seen this before on my computers when a program doesn't know how to read Asian text. Is there a special plugin I need to read Korean on my 301?

You have to make sure that you have Korean font installed and selected for the book as well as appropriate encoding in the Settings.
I had similar problem when I tried to open a book in Hebrew on PB301+ and the problem was resolved with selecting the correct encoding (I had the font installed already).
