Description Jens Petersen 2004-03-11 23:00:48 EST
Description of problem:
With a default Japanese install, when one visits
badly configured sites with mozilla in a ja locale
it displays garbage text rather than Japanese,
since it defaulting to Latin1 encoding

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. http://www.tv-asahi.co.jp/asanama/video/
Actual results:

Expected results:
Japanese text

Additional info:
Would it be possible to turn on autodetect for CJK languages
by default when mozilla is running in a CJK locale? :)

That code is already on.  We try to do autodection, no matter what
language you are in.  Of course, it's a guess so sometimes it gets it
