tlug: Netscape 4.07 Muriyari

I am working on a CGI that needs to display a scrollable block of Japanese
text to users.  I have Netscape 4.07 Muriyari installed at the moment. 
This browser doesn't understand the OBJECT directive, but I've written
the code to fall back to TEXTAREA in that case.  Here, I run afoul of
a glitch that I'd encountered before; Japanese text (EUC encoding) does
not seem to display in TEXTAREA widgets with this browser.  It's there,
because I can see it in the source, and the cursor stays put as I move it
over where the Japanese text should be.  But nothing shows on the display. 

Is there a way around this (wrong encoding?), or do I just hope that the
Laser5 Netscape works better?

If anyone wants to take a look at the problem CGI, it's at:

Go to "List of Projects", then "Code of Civil Procedure", then click on
any of the provisions or headings to get the editing display.  If your
browser understands the OBJECT directive, you'll just get an error,
because the file it calls for isn't in place yet.
