****Observed with 10/08 0.9.4 win32, linux and Mac OS X build ***** When a US-ASCII mail has content type defined to multipart/alternative, it's not displayed in western (iso-8859-1) fonts, instead it's displayed in the fonts of system default language. Steps to reproduce: 1. On a Japanese system, or on a US W2K system with system default locale set to Japanese. 2. Lauch browser. Go to Edit | Preferences to set the fonts for Japanese language to a much bigger size to better distinguish which fonts are used to display us-ascii mails. 3. Have a US-ASCII multipart/alternative mail in you mailbox, and select that mail, you can see the mail body is displayed in the fonts selected for Japanese language. It's not displayed in Western fonts. I'll attach a testing mail later.
It's reproducible on 6.1.
Same problem for us-ascii text/html mail display.
Summary: US-ASCII multipart/alternative mails are not displayed in Western fonts → US-ASCII multipart/alternative or text/html mails are not displayed in Western fonts
Below is the HTML generated by libmime and passed to the layout. It specifies "font-family" but not "font-size" because of bug 91190. I tested on my JA Windows. It looks like on font size, JA font size is used but "Times New Roman" is still used. It can be tested by creating a file using the data below. <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN"> <html> <head> <meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8"> <title>mail</title> </head> <body> <div class="moz-text-html" style="font-family: Times New Roman; ">test</div> </body> </html>

Depends on: 91190
So the problem applies to font size but not font face. Font is selected as specified by UI.
Nominating for nsbeta1, since it's a basic things for US-ASCII mails.
nsbeta1- shows fine with default locale
