To enter regional text (which is actually just characters) the user must have that language installed on his/her system. That's not your problem, obviously a greek or japanese user will have their language installed already).
Your problem is not to read/write those foreign characters correctly to/from browser. For that you need to set the request and response encoding to 'utf-8', which is the 'standard of the web'. Now all characters can be passed both ways.
The easiest way is to include this in your web.config, inside the <system.web> section:
When using databases the keyword is again: utf-8. How to use that depends on your database, try searching in these forums, you're not the first asking that question.
Hope this helps.
