This tests whether browsers display Chinese (T/S), Japanese and Korean in different fonts purely due to changes in language tagging.

Cursory initial testing indicates the following results:
Firebird 0.7, Mozilla 1.5: distinguish SC, TC, J, K; treat zh-TW and zh-HK the same; default to the Japanese font.

Navigator 7.0: distinguishes SC, TC, J, K; but (surprisingly) treats zh-CN and zh-HK the same; defaults to S Chinese font.

IE 6 Win: distinguishes SC, TC, J, K; treats zh-CN and zh-HK the same; defaults to Japanese font.

Opera 7.2: doesn't distinguish between languages.

Netscape 4.8: doesn't distinguish.
