This look ok for me for Japanese with thunderbird-1.0 at least.
Can this be closed then?
I have tried thunderbird-1.0.2-1.4.1 in CJKI (8 locales) and unfortunately, all
8 locales still are not able to print properly. The output of the printing is
still empty square.
I have attached the message together with the ps file containing strings from
all 8 locales. Hope it helps.
