Has anyone else come across problems with Unicode->JIS conversion from Java
1.2? We found that at least one Japanese punctuation character (e.g double
byte dash) were not making the round trip properly and had to work around
the problem by filtering these out and converting them to roughly equivalent
safe characters.

I wondered if anyone else had seen this type of problem and perhaps even
made a testbed to test roundtripping character conversions.
