** Checked with 5/3/99 Win32 M5 candidate build **

Now that we can see the Japanese text body sent from 5.0 (due to the
fix in Bug 5525), we can see what happens to a Japanese text which
is copy/pasted in as opposed to input via JPN IME.

Such text would not show as Japanese on the mail text composer
window -- actually looks like Shift_JIS text displayed with Latin 1
When such text is sent out, it goes out in Shift_JIS and generally
get Base 64-encoded by servers such as Netscape 4.01.

In any case, we need to correct this so that 1) copy/pasting works
in Japanese into the mail text body and 2) no Shift_JIS mail goes
out. Perhaps these are due to some known bug, but I'm filing it
anyway to see if such a bug exists.

As mentioned in his comment, the pasted text is just looks
like Shift_JIS but acutally not. So bug 2) is invalid and I changed the title.

Akkana is the new owner of the clipboard/xif/document encoding work so I changed
ownership to her. [I did add my new e-mail address to the CC list though :)]

Actually, Bugzilla wouldn't accept my change for the CC field, but leaf assures
me that when I get my new account all references to my old e-mail address will
be updated with my new address.

Somehow the status on all of these got set back to New; re-accepting them.

Move XIF/I18n bugs to M9; they're dependant on stubs which I18n is trying to get
in for M8.

This looks like a dup of 8427.
