Re: tlug: Netscape 4.07 Muriyari

It seems OK with the Laser5 browser (which, BTW, I have now discovered to
be 4.51 Muriyari).  This browser displays Japanese text correctly, including
in textarea boxes.  I can't recall if 4.08 Muriyari was OK on this, but
I do remember having the problems you describe with older Muriyari

Are many of your viewers going to be using 4.07 Muriyari (I hope not!)?
If they are, one thing you might want to do is put a small notice on your
top page that describes the problems known to happen with 4.0x Muriyari
and links to:

1) Download Laser5's 4.51 binary
2) To the Japanese and English Muriyari pages, for those not using
   RPM-based systems or who would just prefer to build their own.
