Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: NOTE: you should have cyryllic support and fonts installed correctly. 1. Go to http://chat.gala.net/ 2. Enter username 'Mozilla' and password 'www.mozilla.org' (no quotes) or any other username and password. 3. Select Java version by clicking appropriate radiobutton (HTML chat is selected by default). 4. Submit form. Actual Results: In window bottom there are some buttons to send messages, ignore users, request help etc. Text labels on buttons, drop-down lists etc are written in russian. In all versions of Netscape and Mozilla those labels are unreadable. Expected Results: Render text labels so that I could read it.
Created attachment 98496 [details] That's how controls should be displayed (screenshot from IE6 on WinXP)
which JRE ?
Andrew Novikov: Which OS language of your WinXP? Could you please try to switch your WinXP locale to russian to see if they would be displayed OK? It might be related with bug 114078.
I'm using JRE 1.3.1, OS: WindowsXP Corporate Edition English, locale is already set to russian.
I failed to login...confirm by reporter's screen shot (under russian locale WinXP).

I can see the same problem on Linux with BlackDown Java 1.4.1b There's simpler test case at MozillaPL.org site - it tests wheather you can enter and display Polish characters. There's no problem with Windows and Polish locale. Even if you have Polish locale there are no Polish characters on Component Label (when you enter the page with Linux it displays ??? instead of correct letters) and you can enter and display them on TextField Component (below). The test case: http://mozillapl.org/mozilla/czat/applet-test.html We will try to improve it (add source, tell me what else is needed in a second)
The problem doesn't appear after installing Windows XP Service Pack 1 and upgrading JRE to 1.4.0. Perhaps JRE 1.3 is the source of problem. I have no way to test it on JRE 1.4 without WinXP SP1.
Mark as verified per comment above.
It still doesn't work,.. This problem affects all OS versions but: on Windows if your locale matches the one in the applet you're fine, if they doesn't (say I with Polish locale will go to this Ukrainian test page) some components (label) will be displayed incorectly characters replaced with ???. on Linux the problem with label component doesn't really depend on your locale. Doesn't matter if they match or they don't with the charset of the label in applet - you will always get international characters replaced with ??? Whe have tried to tweak fontproperties or fontproperties.pl file (to include proper iso-8859-2 character set) but in almost every case this change coused Mozilla to crash (or wasn't giving any effects at all - tested on few different PC;s/distributions) Summary of all tests can be found here: http://mozillapl.org/mozilla/czat/applet-test.html Please let me know if it's clear enough. The OS version field has to be changed to All and the bug should be open again unless you want me to file another bug. Adding myself and our Java coordinator to the CC.
Adding Gabriel to CC list.
There is a bug talking about applet display garbled in different locale: http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=114078 Seems like it's the same windows problem in comment #12. And for linux, I don't know if it's related with the available fonts in system. I'm re-open this bug per comment #12.
I think both roy and me are off mozilla for more than 2 years. If these bugs are still here now, I think the real stauts is 'won't fix'. If you want to reopen it, please find a new owner for it first.
