Hello Rod,

I do not know the details for setting Japanese on RH-8.0 Evoluion and
OpenOffice suite, as my knows,

the latest 'gtkhtml-1.1.x' which is embedded in mail composer is not
stable version for GNOME-1.4 and can not handle to Japanese correctly.

I reply to you with stable version v1.0.8 of Evolution and v1.0.4 of
gtkhtml. If you use Japanese on Evolution set, you might be need to
downgrade to the stable version.

Yes, I've been tried to do so on Evolution-1.2.0 before.
It might be caused by gtkhtml problem which can not rendering with
Japanese encoding with Japanese fontset.

It is NOT seems to support `fontconfig` in OpenOffice suite, which is
now only GNOME-2.2.x series does; It's just independent to `fontconfig`.
If you set Japanese fontset on OpenOffice, you should replace the
fontset in "Option - OpenOffice.org - Replacement Fonts" in menu "Tool".
If you are possible, the following page might be helps for you.
