I used ie6 also and think it may have something to do with the screen
reader interaction.

that is because the more complex kana require more information thus
these
operating systems are "double byte" as opposed to our single byte
system.  there are interperter programs but they take up room on a
persons
hard drive so they are frequently added as needed.

Well not realy programs...fonts.  Most of the modern browsers support
Unicode.  ASCII has been superceded largely by unicode for modern
programming as it supports a much larger range of symbols than Extended
ASCII which remains a subset of Unicode just as ASCII is a subset of
EXtende
ASCII.

FOr instance in the browser I was using (IE6) it automaticly detected
that
the language used was Thai and displayed correctly. Of course I can
select
languages from the view Encoding menu if the language pack is one that
has
not been installed by default it will promt me to install it.

Of course you must know the language to read it.  I guess three years
till
it can be translated automaticly.
