Build: 12-14 trunk build / Win98 Simplfied Chinese Steps: 1. Launch browser and go http://fr.yahoo.com 2. Check the charset by going Edit | Character Coding, it marked as iso-8859-1 which is correctly. Result: Those accent characters are not display properly, they are either can not be displayed or display as sort of kanji (chinese) face. Changing auto-detect options could not correct the wrong display. Note: the page is displayed fine on IE.
shanjian- it seems we are using the A version on Chinese and Korean Win95/98 also. I think we should not do so and only limited such approach for Japanese Win95/98. The reason is Japanese window do NOT do font association but Chinese and Korean window does.

We only use A version when GetACP return 932 (shift-JIS). It might be a different problem. sigh...

ylong, this only happen to chinese and korean system (win 95 and win 98) right ? shanjian- read my early research notes on http://people.netscape.com/ftang/europtype.html That is what I wrote 4 years ago and many thing changed. not sure it is related or not
also, I remember some one told me long time ago there are a api way to turn off the font association on C and k version of Win95/98 by using a undocumented option flag.
in addition to the comment above- the API I talk about only affect that particular application. The registry hack will impact the whole system.
some infor about "Font Association" are described in http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/vbcon98/html/vbconfontdisplayprintconsiderationsindbcsenvironment.asp see http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;q142607 : Extra set for Chinese PRC locale (GB or GBK Code) This set includes the following features: * Turning on/off the system default Font Association. For certain English applications, turning off the Font Association is necessary to prevent High ANSI characters (for example, smart quotes) from displaying as Chinese characters. also http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/dnintl/html/s24b6_j.asp ok, here is the trick http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;q171153 HOWTO: Display Graphic Chars on Chinese & Korean Windows (Q171153) The information in this article applies to: * Microsoft Win32 Software Development Kit (SDK), used with: * Microsoft Windows 95 * the operating system: Microsoft Windows NT * the operating system: Microsoft Windows 2000 SUMMARY When an application tries to display extended ANSI (above Hex 80, graphic characters like double dagger, curly quotes, and etc.) characters on Chinese and Korean Windows 95 or Windows NT, these characters are actually displayed as double-byte characters. MORE INFORMATION For example, under Windows 95 Korean version, when you select the Times New Roman font, a word processor tries to display English text with curly quotes. As a result, the system displays Korean characters instead of curly quotes. The reason is that these extended area characters are also used as lead-byte for double-byte character sets. To display the extended ANSI character correctly on Chinese and Korean Windows 95 or Windows NT, the Font Association of the system should be turned off. By default, Font Association is always on. To turn off the Font Association in your application, use CreateFontIndirect() with lfClipPrecision in LogFont set as 0x40. This doesn't have any effect on non- Font Association system. ... If you use Japanese Windows NT and Windows 95, you do not need to follow the methods discussed above. They are already enabled to display extended ANSI characters. Japanese Windows 95 doesn't have the Associated CharSet key and Japanese Windows NT 4.0 has the Associated CharSet key defaulted to "no".
I have not test this patch yet.
yokoyama: can you reproduce the origional problem on your Chinese Win 2K ?
I don't see this on Chinese W2k.
