Re: Using unicode or MBCS characters in forms



If you use Navigator 2.0 or later, you still need the specific japanese 
fonts in order to diplay the japanese characters. 

If you use TANGO browser by ALIS technology, a Canadian company, you 
don't need to install any Japanese fonts and your kanji docs will be 
correctly displayed.
