** Obserevd with 4/20/99 Win32 build ** Currently we are lacking iso-2022-jp converter to/from Unicode. Because of this, we cannot verify if MIME-encoder is working properly for Japanese. We verified that it is working for ISO-8859-1 in Bug 3994. This bug has been filed to make sure that JPN MIME-encoding is working OK on mail header once the converter gets checked in.
iso-2022-jp converter from Unicode is available so we can see Japanese subject and the body.
It is true that we can display Japanese headers and body. What I meant to say is that I'm not able to conrifm that Japanese headers we send out by 5.0 is properly MIME-encoded. There is an Editor bug probably which is preventing the input in Japanese. Also copy/pase of Japanese strings does not work in the Subject header area. In any case, at this point I'm still not able to confirm that 5.0 sends out properly encoded Japanese headers. Sine I already verified ISO-8859-1 header encoding in Bug 3994, this bug has been filed to keep track of the Japanese header encoding on send.
>iso-2022-jp converter from Unicode is available incorrect, only to Unicode is available not from
Cata is working on the 2022-jp encoder now http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=5289
5289 is marked as fixed, Endder bug (4388) should also be fixed in order to test Japanse message body send.
My last comment was not correct, this bug is about header not body (4388). I mark this as FIXED. I know there is an input bug 5061 so we cannot veriry. I think this bug may be marked as dup of 5061.
No. We should keep this bug separate from 5061. Even if 5061 is fixed, we still need to confirm that Japanese headers are MIME-encoded correctly.
Unverifiable until we get Ender widgets for the headers.
Tried tne new GFX widget for the Subject header and but the apprunner crashed. So, I guess this has to wait another cycle for verification.
Last week we were able to type Japanese into form text fields and text areas. Teruko, Is this still working? Or is there a mail specific problem? Kat, Were you able to type anything before crashing?
GFX thing is not very stable. Sometimes I see input in Japanese and then it crashes on Send. Sometimes, it simply crashes on Japanese input into the Subject window and I don't even see Japanese input. These are probably mail-specific problems -- I would file a bug if it will be taken seriously at this point. I think Steve Clark said that he would look at only functional bugs.
** Checked with 9/16/99 Win32 M11 build ** JPN input into the subject header has been working since the GFX widget got tunred as default (more or less). We can finally see that we MIME-encode JPN subject correctly,i.e. B64of iso-2022-jp. Marking it verified as fixed.
