Hi Robert,

Thanks a lot for your prompt reply. 

1. I am using IE 5.0. The language settings (Encoding) in the browser has been set to "UTF-8", as my application needs to support multiple languages.
    The Japanese characters are getting properly displayed on the browser page, but not on the javascript alert message window.

2. I understand your point, and I belive this might be the case when the javascript encodes the String passed to it in the System dependent character encoding which is different for English and Japanese operating system. I would appreciate if you can guide me how to set character encoding in JavaScript code.

  There are two immediate things you need to check before we can diagnose the problem:
  1) What browser/version are you using? Have you set the language settings in your browser to Japanese? (in IE, View/Encoding/japanese Auto-select)
  2) Have you specified the correct character encoding in the JavaScript code (e.g., Shift-JIS)?
  Kind regards,
