	We have one application where we are taking inputs from users using a
	form and then we are compiling a mail using these inputs. Then using
	"mailto:" we are invoking outlook to send the mail.
	
	
	The problem we have observed is:
	
	
	If you enter japanese words in input form field on windows (english)
	machine the multi-byte words are represented in their hex encoding in
	the mail. I have observed that the encoding scheme used in the mail is
	UTF-8.
	  

Unfortunately, the problem has been around for a long time... It was observed it 2001 see http://www.dragonthoughts.co.uk/technical/japaneseemail.html

At that time we found it intractable.
