Patch attempt #1
This patch causes joe to decode the help text output prior to displaying and
counts one UTF-8 glyph as one char for screen size purposes.
The 'int ret' variable isn't used in that patch. However, the rest

also suggest include gettext patch from markx_sk in sourceforge.
and then exclude help message from joerc into src.
The gettext patch is for joe-2.9.8, and does not apply very well to
3.1. When a newer version of the patch is built, I'll look in to it.

better than joe-3.1-3, but still not complete :(
in terminal, the width of each CJK glyph equal two letters.
could it be the reason, which also sometime causes broken
CJK glyphs in the main edit pane?
I don't think there's a clean way to determine the proper width of the
glyph as it's rendered on the screen, but I think the effect that
would have would be to display the whole glyph (and move the edge off
the screen) in this case.
I'll do more looking.
Wait, yes there is.

joerc with help messages for zh_TW.UTF-8
here is another joerc.
before taking a gettext patch, could you make a i18n joerc higher priority?
that is, joe looks for:
I was not going to take the gettext patch. The patch is against
2.9.8, and 3.1 is *very* different from 2.9.8 (such as, 2.9.8 does not
have UTF-8 support).
I'm going to submit joerc.zh_TW.UTF-8 upstream. All of the other text
files need to be converted to all the different languages too
(jpicorc, jmacsrc, etc.).
The author of joe is going to create a contrib directory and place the
joerc.zj_TW.UTF-8 there. He's also got it on his roadmap to implement
Apparently, others are working on separating the help text out of
joerc so that it can be internationalized as well.
As others are already working on this, I'm closing this 'UPSTREAM'.
