Build: 07/10 branch OS: RH6.2-J This bug is seperated from bug 87167. With the fix for bug 87167, Japanese pages are not displayed in bold anymore, but Korean pages are still displayed in bold if the browser is launched in Japanese locale. Steps to reproduce: 1. Launch browser in Japaense locale. 2. Go to http://home.netscape.com/ko, you'll see the Korean characters are displayed in bold. 3. Set LANG to C, then launch browser and go to the same page. You won't see this problem.
Changed QA contact to email@example.com.

This problem also exists when displaying a GB2312 mail. To see it, 1. Go to http://home.netscape.com/zh/cn 2. Send this page in gb2312 to yourself. 3. After received, in the mail subject "XXXX Netscape" ("Welcome to Netscape" in Chinese, X stands for Chinese characters), the first Chinese and the fourth Chinese character are displayed in bold.
Summary: Korean page is displayed in bold font when browser is launched in Ja locale → Korean page or Simplified Chinese mail is displayed in bold font when browser is launched in Ja locale

Created attachment 58684 [details] Wrong Korean font The Korean font is not bold but Yeopseo-che now.
With the 0.9.6 build(2001112009), and the previous 0.9.5 build the Korean font is the YeopSeo-che as you can see the attachement I added. The display font is not changed, whether it is fixed width or not. I think the 2 problems are linked each other. With 0.9.4, there was no this problem.
FYI, the Korean font file name used is written in Korean. The file name is displayed broken on English version of Windows. Can it cause the problem? Additional information. Just after the Mozilla 0.9.7 was installed the font for the e-mail subject list was changed as it's set using the preference. But after restarting the Mozilla, it becomes Yeopseoche again.
have this been fixed on Linux ? nhotta should address this issue already.

I'm confused as to what the issue is here. I launched Mozilla under Japanese locale(RH Linux 7.1) and hardly found anything abnormal at http://home.netscape.com/ko and http://home.netscape.com/zh/cn. There have been rather large changes in Linux(gfx) font selection since last summer and the problem may have gone by now. Alternative explanation I don't see the problem is that I have a lot more Korean and Chinese fonts installed on my Linux box than come with RH 6.2. Is the problem still present in 0.9.9 or recent nightly? If so, I'd like to see a screenshot or two. To JongAm, Are you sure you're talking about the same problem as originally reported? It seems like your issue is about Mozilla running under MS-Windows. Could you file a separate bug? Thank you
Yes, seems the original problem has gone with recently trunk build. We still have problem on display in mail which handled by some other bugs (bug 121520? bug 119967?)
To Jungshin ============ Yes, it still looks like that the same one to what I reported before. However I didn't try the Mozilla 0.9.9 on MS Windows, so I am sure if the problem is solved now. FYI, I've seen another bug reporting with this issue. But I can't remember what it was.
