Description Michal Jaegermann 2004-10-18 23:23:56 EDT
Description of problem:

Files /usr/share/texmf/Changes.txt and /usr/share/texmf/README.txt
pretend to be regular text files but actually they have somewhat
surprising coding.  For the first one emacs is able to figure out
that this is a Japanese text coded in iso-2022-jp-unix.  The
other one baffles even emacs while 'file' claims 
"README.txt: ISO-8859 text" and this is clearly not the case.
It seems to be some Japanese text as well.

At least COPYRIGHT.jis in the same directory does not leave
any doubts. :-)  It is in iso-2022-jp-unix too while README.txt
is using definitely some other encoding and it does not seem to
be utf-8 as well.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Comment 1 Jindrich Novy 2004-10-25 09:45:00 EDT

the README.txt is in euc-jp encoding, so to keep all the encodings
apparent I converted all the Japanese files Changes.txt, README.txt to
iso-2022-jp and renamed them to Changes.txt.jis and README.txt.jis.
