** Observed with 9/15/99 Win32 M10 build **

The above page has a meta tag=euc-jp.
When you access this page, it never seems to finish loading.
On the DOS prompt window, I see repeated msgs from the
detector looping forever.
The problem does not occur if I eliminate:

user_pref("intl.charset.detector", "japsm");

line from my prefs.js.

Also since this page has a valid meta tag, why is the detector engaged
in this case?

I'm going to raise the Priority and Severity to P1 and M11,
respectively. We need a resolution on this so that
we can reply/quote mail with JPN attachment. I believe
Bug 13844 is dependent on this fix.
