Description

18 years ago
** Observed with 5/23/99 Win32 build **

1. Send yourself a msg from 4.6 in Japanese with the Subject and body in
   Japanese.

With 4.6, you can copy paste this string wit the Character Set set to
Japanese (Auto-Detect) on your browser. As long as the new Composer's
Character set is set to Japanese (Auto-Detect) and your global default
set to Japanese, this should work.

2. Receive this msg with 5.0 Messenger
3. Confirm that the message header is displaying correctly on the
   thread pane header.
4. Now engage the "reply" button.
5. Note that the quoted subject is in raw MIME-encoded format rather
   than showing as Japanese.

Reply/Quote in Japanese is part of the International requirements
for M6. This then has to be working for M6.

Naoki, if this is still true, please set the TFV to M6.

I think this is a widget problem, we need to switch to Ender.
I checked in the debugger that messenger is passing correct Unicode String (for
Japanese) to the widget (nsIDOMHTMLInputElement).

There seems to be a problem in general with UTF-8 encoding. Currently, sending
META tags to Ender doesn't let you edit the document. I've turned off UTF-8
output in quoting until we can get this fixed. Also, added akkana to the cc
list.

Shoot for M9 on this one.

I have a fix for this in my tree. Now that the Ender problem of reloading URL's
has been fixed, I can checkin in my fix when the tree opens.

This is a simple libmime change of stuff that I commented out (emitting META
tags).

** Checked with 7/30/99 Win32 build **

This is now fixed. Currently because we are not using
GFX widget in the subject field, we see dots instead of
Japanese characters, but when the GFX widget.mode=2 is set,
you actually see Japanese indicating that MIME headers are
getting decoded properly.

Rich, should the GFX widget thing be part of this bug?
If not, I'll go ahead and mark it verified.

The GFX widget falls under Jean-Francios's area so I wouldn't mix the two.
