Take navigator.xul and change a couple of strings to Japanese or to European extended characters (using Unicode). Go to a page that has a JS popup menu. On Win, all on-screen widgets look good, on Mac the text labels of the menu items are corrupted. It looks like MacFE still expects either Shift-JIS or MacRoman, as appropriate. It should be looking for and displaying Unicode characters.

reassigning to karnaze, since this is a forms widget. I think this should be marked wontfix though, since it is the native popups. We won't be doing our XP version of popups until M6
Reassigning to Pierre since it sounds Mac specific.
Reassigning to saari since it is menu-related
Adding to QA Blocker radar.
Pushing to M7. There is no good solution for Mac and Unicode menus.
Whiteboard: QA BLOCKER - ok for M6 → DEPEND - Intl - QA BLOCKER - ok for M6
should be fixed as part of the fix for #5402. this also adds unicode support for the nsContextualMenu class.

I belive the fix for #5402 that I checked in today (6/2/98; 5:30pm) should solve this problem as well. Please verify and reopen if that isn't the case.
Temporarily reopened, so I can reassign to Tague. I'm doing my anal-rententive management thing and trying to track what bugs my group is fixing. :-}
Verifyied against June 18 build.
