I have checked it with window 2000 Server and NT, same problem lies there.
I also checked it by installing jvm for windows but no use.
On Win XP Professional i checked it with Netscapte 7.0 and it works fine.
All the characters are displayed properly in text boxes.
I will check it down on Win 98 too.
