If Hiragana is in the string, it gets very dirty.
If not, the string gets antialiased.
That's very silly behavior.
That's all Xft.
Look like it is getting two different fonts. Is mozilla just getting the first "suitable"
font on the list?
Yes, that's what it does via the xft setup.
A) Perhaps Mozilla isn't setting the language tags for controls
based on the language of the page?
B) Does removing the fonts in /usr/share/fonts/ja/misc improve
C) Does removing bitmap-fonts-cjk improve the situation (if you
have that installed?)

mv /usr/share/fonts/ja/misc /tmp; still the same

Same- However I have tested around on which fonts that effect the selections: *if* i
remove console* in /usr/share/fonts/bitmap-fonts/ then the display and font
selection will look much better (will only select ttf font so that we could not see the
rendering problem of console glyphs). We may have two folds the problem - one
may related to ways of only return a font with nearest to fullset of the charset.
Another one is the rendering problem on the console font(?)

As far as I know, it is.
Seems to be fixed in Phoebe4 + mozilla 1.2.1-15
