Paraphrased: Glen seeks a working example of the richedit 2 control that
shows some Unicode CJK text on Windows 98.

I was embarassed by the poor response Glen recived from various Microsoft
folks, so I wrote the attached minimal program that meets his goal. The
attached file is the complete program that compiles, links, and runs. You
might need to tweak it to use a font that you have installed on your system.
This is set to use SimHei. I ran this on English Windows 98 Second Edition
4.10.2222A with Riched20.dll version, and it appears to work.
