    you might want to talk to the author of UTN#14 then, because he seems to
    be using the term "CJK text" in a sense that I find indistinguishable
    from the way Jim did.

    Any relation of yours?



    PS: I too think that replacing the "CJK text" with "Katakana and Hangul"
    as a more specific choice, would have been an improvement- as written it
    makes the problem sound more open-ended than it is. But you guys are
    arguing about an E-mail subject line, of all things....
