(This bug imported from BugSplat, Netscape's internal bugsystem.  It
was known there as bug #153408
http://scopus.netscape.com/bugsplat/show_bug.cgi?id=153408
Imported into Bugzilla on 02/04/99 13:43)

Break down Bug 91117 to seperate bugs so we can deal with it. I will close Bug
91117 after the break down.

Dear Daniel,
There is X11 Communicator 4.02 Cyrillic (KOI8-R) encoding support bug list:

o This version not honors Mail/News body encoding when the body shows first
š time: even if current encoding is set to KOI8-R, it shows message
š body in ISO-8859-1, temporary switching to ISO-8859-1 and back to
š KOI8-R helps.

Have a look at the browsers comparison table at
http://www.nagual.pp.ru/~ache/main.html#tests to see how your
software compares to a number of other browsers with regard to
KOI8-R support.

Regards,
Gleb. gleb@opentech.olvit.ru

I believe this is happend when they use communicator on non Russian locale. WE
have limitation on Motif 's locale model. Maybe we should work around that model
for non-CJK text. (CJK text have to bind with locale model for input method.)

Should re-check this against nhotta's recent fixes for Cyrillic.

bob: I assign this to you since Mail/News is out of the scope of Gromit. Please
tell us what should we do about mail/news related bug in our current bug list.
