I agree :-) I live in Japan. The Japanese still have some problems
with Unicode, but I think almost everyone here realises that it offers
99% of what most people want in document portability. As such, I would
dearly love to see the character encoding in text/html and text/sgml
to be either UTF-8 or UTF-7. As it is now, writing a Japanese WWW
browser is not trivial.
