Ask the people in a small company near Vancouver who actually want(ed)
to make Windows 95 able to run on a 386SX with "only" 4 Mo or memory...

Also blame the people in the same company that does not upgrade their
installation scripts as memory gets cheaper and is no more a problem
with Windows 98...

I am like you: I do know the solution, and do not understand how some
projects are managed. I do not understand any reason why the "small"
versions of TNR, Arial and Courier New are still installed on Windows

I am not completely familiar with the various Japanese encodings, but
I seem to remember some did have the Polish characters.

Also certainly ISO 2022 is able to do the trick ;-)))
