Full Article Attached M5 Messenger Now International!

Thursday May 6th, 1999

M5 now allows for the display of various languages in the same messenger pane. Click the thumbnail to see a screenshot in action. You are seeing, in order of appearance in the message list, 1: French (ISO-8859-1), 2: Czech (ISO-8859-2), 3: Russian (Cyrillic: KOI8-R), 4: Greek (ISO-8859-7), 5 through 9: Japanese (2nd to 5th msgs show Japanese files attached), 10: UTF8 (Unicode, 11: Estonian (Baltic: ISO-8859-4), 12: Turkish (ISO-8859-9), 13: Demo of EURO symbol in ISO-8859-1 mail, 14: Korean (EUC-KR), 15: Traditional Chinese (Big5), 16: Simplified Chinese (GB2312). In the message pane you can see Netcenter Japan displayed.

If you have a Win32 system, you can see this in action. It requires a little tweaking, as the preferences dialogs aren't hooked up yet. Click Full Article below for more.

Thanks to Katsuhiko Momoi for all his help getting the screenshot and files for the demo.

Off-topic, but related to Simon's post....

Umm a while back there was some downloadable chrome area planned, and names were submitted, but when are we going to see the area? Is it happening anytime soon, because I'd love to see my M5 build in a cool new skin (no offence to you guys who did the actual present navigator.xul, it looks good...)
