(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. email@example.com
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.
This needs to be regressed when the new messenger is available.
cyrillic is not part of dog food. Set Target Milestone to M4
Summary: Mail/news body should not use ISO-8859-1 font for KOI8-R mail → Mail- Mail/news body should not use ISO-8859-1 font for KOI8-R mail
