Actually, install the Bitstream Cyberbit font, and you'll be able to see
much more, provided you have access to UTF-8 files containing a multitude
of different languages. I converted a Unicode-encoded multilingual
document, containing (among others) Japanese, Simplified Chinese,
Traditional Chinese and Korean, into a UTF-8 html file, and it displayed
quite nicely in Netscape 4.0. The only problem is, using one font to
display all of these languages (especially for Simplified and Traditional
Chinese) is less optimal that having specific fonts for each (Netscape
5.0? ;-).
