Comment 4 Lawrence Lim 2005-03-31 20:13:55 EST
Hi Chris,
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.

Comment 7 Jens Petersen 2005-05-16 10:25:22 EDT
Lawrence, perhaps it has to be utf-8 not to print??

At least ja messages in ISO-2022-JP print ok for me
with thunderbird-1.0.2-1.3.2 on FC3.
Comment 8 Jens Petersen 2005-05-16 11:15:08 EDT
Is this a duplicate of bug 126265?
Comment 10 Akira TAGOH 2006-02-21 03:53:29 EST
Comment #7:
This happens if the message body is encoded as UTF-8. but UTF-8 subject is

FYI, This looks to me like get fixed in 1.5-3 in FC5. but still appears on FC4.
changing version then.
