This will currently build w3m with
1. Japanese menus and documentation,
2. internal use of Unicode for character set conversion,
3. UTF-8 display by default.
(3) is really a minor point, as the display character set can easily
be changed in the option panel or even from the command line (e.g.
The real alternative is replacing (2) with an ISO-2022-based scheme.
Possibly it doesn't convert at all then, maybe it merely uses
kterm's ISO 2022 character set switching abilities. I know too
little about East Asian character set issues. I am fairly certain,
though, that this doesn't affect monolingual Japanese texts at all.
It may make some difference when you mix Japanese and Chinese.
BTW, I think that "kanji" is a misnomer for the flavor. I should
probably just change it to "japanese". Opinions?
