Description

I thought there is another bug filed for this, but I can't
find it. So I'll file it to see. 

In Beta 1, we removed TEXT and Eudora modules from the utility
for the Japanese version because they were not ready for Japanese
data, possibly for non-ASCII data. 
This bug is filed to request that the Text import works for this
kind of multi-byte data.

Text data should be stored in the system charset most probably.
This means that there need to be proper conversion from the system
charset to whatever charset is expected by Mozilla -- UTTF-8,
most probably.

** Checked with 5/30/2000 Win32 build under Japanese Windows **

Yes, .txt, .csv, and .tab format TEXt importing 
seems to work OK from 4.x into Mozilla now on
Japanese Windows.

I would like to ask my coleagues to try 
importing 4.x exported TEXT files in the above
format under Mac and Linux also. Try this under
Japanese OS or locale, and if possible under one
extra locale whose system charset is not ISO-8859-1,
e.g. Russian. marina might try this under Russian windows
to see if the basic idea of the fix is OK.
