Is this a problem of Japanese input or font?
Can you view Japanese pages (e.g. http://home.netscape.com)?
How about other platforms?

browsing japanese pages is fine.... inputing text doesn't work.

I tried 2000100909-M18 build on Win95-J.
Japanese IME works fine both on Composer and Mail.

Teruko is using Naoki's account.

I looked at Tracy's setup.  He is using Grobal IME with Windows US.
When he start using Japanese IME, the error "Microsoft Grobal IME 5.0 for
Japanese was unable to load the Japanese language pack."
He cannot type any Japanese at all in Composer and Mail.

However, Xianglan uses Japanese Windows.  Japanese IME works fine.
I think this is the problem on Grobal IME.  Need to investigate.

It also happens on branch build, so it's more serious. Put regression keyword.
Also changed the title.
