Sorry to sound skeptical, but is that just a subset of the japanese
characters, which it shows as wacky?
I tried launching Internet Explorer 5.2 (which is on my Panther
partition) and went to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Japanese_language
-- this page is in UTF-8 and contain several japanese characters, and
although I don't read japanese, it does look alright to me.

I'm going to add better/actual international support to TM
eventually. Though currently it looks a little like it'll be a 1.4-
thing (but 1.2 and 1.3 should take shorter time than the current 1.1).
