???????????????[zo-ri-tsu-se-se-se-se-se-se-se...] in testfile
displays correctly for me with Cyberbit fonts installed(instructions:
http://www.mozilla.org/quality/smoketests/faq.html#international) in Milestone
0.9.5 although I did stumble on this by accident so it might be nice if
instructions for obtaining these fonts were included in the release notes... 
The only other japanese support I have on my computer is my Japanese Word
Processor which acts as a seperate program...

I can render your attached file correctly in my WinXP.
It reads as [zo-ri-tsu-se-se-se-se-se-se-se...] :) 

stefan: I failed to see problems so far.  
        Is this about "Saving File" or "Opening" file?
