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.
Comment 4 User image Pierre Saslawsky 1999-04-23 16:22:59 PDT
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.
Comment 7 User image tague 1999-06-02 00:39:59 PDT
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. :-}
