Summary: Japanese Character Support 

Initial Comment:
Hey everybody!

I've noticed some very strange behavior with gaim when
talking to my friends on AIM.  It seems that if I'm
talking to my other friends on Gaim in Japanese, they
can read the characters fine.  However, when I talk to
someone using a windows AIM client, the Japanese
appears as gibberish.  This is odd, because I can talk
to these same people using normal AIM using the same
font (MS Mincho) and it appears normal to them.  What's
also odd is that if I talk to someone who is using an
Apple AIM client, than the Japanese characters appear
correct again.

Is this a bug or is this a settings problem or what?

Could be a bug on the receiving end.  Anybody know what
these clients expect as encoding?  Could be that they expect
some Windows-specific encoding.

What client software is that?
