In a way, but it has a lot of ASCII characters that would not normally
be found in Japanese text. Plain Japanese text without markup would be
better. Maybe some kind of "full text" archive of literature such as
we have in the USA at university libraries?

How about newsgroup archives? (I think JIS-7 is used for newsgroups?
Or ISO 2022-JP?)

Either my Shift-JIS parser is wrong, or none of these web pages has
any halfwidth Katakana. But since I have only a USA Windows-95 PC
with Netscape for viewing, all I see is little boxes anyway, so I have
no way of knowing what I'm looking at (even if I *could* read
Japanese :-)
