1. There is no way to change the display language for the foreign language newsgroup¼Ö¾¹¨¦
the newsgroup name appeared only as raw-characters instead of proper foreign
in Mozilla, even the default character set is setup properly.

2. I can read, but can't post anything to the newsgroup.
Mozilla returns an error:
A News (NNTP) error occured: cannot crosspost to nonexistent group
( see
dnews.log for details

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Subscribe the newsgroup: news://¼Ö¾¹¨¦
2. Try to post something to the group
3. You will receive the error

Actual Results:  
Mozilla returns an error message:
A News (NNTP) error occured: cannot crosspost to nonexistent group
( see
dnews.log for details

Expected Results:  
Post message to the group successfully, just like M$'s Outlook Express

I've removed the group a while ago, and I re-subscribe the group again as soon
as I received your e-mail (I am using Mozilla 1.6 right now)
The situation now is even worse... I can't even read any posted news when I
click on any post. The post item would be selected, but the content won't
display (i.e. Blank).

Yes, I have write access to the group. I tried to access the group via M$ OE6,
and I post and read without any problem.

I've attached the display screen of both newsgroup readers.

(i.e. If you need to see the newsgroup posts encoding correctly, you have to
specify the right encoding from Edit->Newsgroup Properties. While Mozilla can't
display the newsgroup name properly even after I changed the newsgroup encoding,
OE6 can display both the newsgroup name and its posts with correct encoding)
