    Did you solve your problem? I opened both of these documents into IE,
    clicked the "Edit in Microsoft Word" button for each, and they imported
    correctly, with the Japanese displaying fine.

    In the first test file, the last letter of your name at the bottom is
    not correctly encoded in UTF-8 so it doesn't come through, but the rest
    is fine. Is this the character you said was not displaying correctly?

    Subject: UTF-8 and HTML import into MS Word 2000

    I try to convert a LaTeX document into Word through UTF-8 coded HTML.

    When I import a small test


    into Word, I see it correctly. To be precise, sufficiently correctly
    (a single Polish letter is displayed in a strange way) as all Japanese
    characters are displayed properly.

    When I import the real document


    exactly in the same way, I see empty boxes instead of Japanese

    Am I making some silly error? I will appreciate comments and

    Best regards
