[clug-talk] Characters sometimes replaced with Japanese Characters

I think i may have to do with the way firefox defaults to certain character 
encoding .. I  the menu: View/Character encoding ... mine is set to Unicode,  
and there is auto detect options too. But what tends to cause this type of 
display error is the use of a font that is not Unicode (utf-8) as a Unicode 
font ... if changing the default encoding does not improve on the situation, 
you might want to look into the more general Edit / Preferences / Default 
font and select a different font as a default font and see if that helps. 
Note that the font you select should be a Unicode font, since these guys tend 
to have most of the encoding in them, as opposed to say a Western or in your 
case a Japanese Kanji font.

Check in firefox, and see
