I have following HTML page:

		<html>
		<head>
		<meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text-html;
charset=windows-1252">
		</head>
		<body>
		lr w Prdt EUR <IMG alt="lr w Prdt EUR"
height=20 width=20 src="foo.gif" >
		</body>
		</html>

When I view the page using Chinese OS (Win98) and Chinese IE 4.01/5.01/5.5
the body text is displayed correctly but when I mouse over the image, some
character combination are actually been interpreted as Big5 and displayed as
Chinese characters which makes tool tip text garbage.  On Japanese Win98/IE,
tooltip displays fine.

Does anybody know if this is something I'm doing wrong or is it a bug/issue
with Chinese IE/OS? 

Later,
