I am not sure if this bug is applicable for the current mozilla build.
MSLU is for *Unicode Application* running on Win9x and Me.
Mozilla is not an Unicode App (well, not yet).  

Accepting but marking as Future.

Does Mozilla on Win 9X/Me render Unicode pages properly?!? MSLU is cool in that 
you get UNICODE out of Win 9X/Me where known exist, but there is a major 
performance hit for using this library.  However, if Mozilla does not right 
thing anyhow, then what's the point.

I'll eventually get VMWare on my Linux boxes and test Win 9X/Me and see how 
Mozilla works...

Oh, in the mean time, if anyone has Mozilla on Win 9X/Me, can the point the 
browser to the following pages:

  UNICODE UTF-8 TESTS
TEXT:      http://www.realmspace.com/unicode/ut/t/utf8.txt
HTML:      http://www.realmspace.com/unicode/ut/h/utf8.html
HTML+CSS:  http://www.realmspace.com/unicode/ut/hc/utf8_css.html
XML:       http://www.realmspace.com/unicode/ut/x/utf8.xml
XML+CSS:   http://www.realmspace.com/unicode/ut/xc/utf8_css.xml

Notes, you'll need language packs from Microsoft for Korean, Chinese, and 
Japanese. But if just boxes appear, that is good.  If now boxes, no kanji, no 
hangeul, no kana, appears and gibberish appears, that is bad.

>Does Mozilla on Win 9X/Me render Unicode pages properly?!?
Yes and Unicode page and other CJK pages are included 
in the daily smoketest.

discovered another way to resolve this problem. (Frank Tang)
Comment 8 User image Roy Yokoyama 2002-12-04 13:57:51 PST
This bug is invalid.  mozilla is a unicode hybrid application 
(ie. It morphes into ACP app when moz is in Win9x base operating system.) 
Comment 9 User image Teruko Kobayashi 2003-01-07 11:54:56 PST
Verified as invalid.
