Hmm.. I step on the mine of the browsers?

I noticed &#x301C; probrem, a cause Mozilla(on linux) could not
display this entity (showed white square) mail converted with
MHonArc2002-12-02-snap. Perhaps browser could not display correct size
font. Then I rewrite to &#xFF5E; mozilla could displayed..

Also MS InternetExplorer display diferent char (correct WaveDash?).

;; I do not know what is the correct way now.. sorry.

Original mail wrote in ISO-2022-JP (kara in Japanese).

Perhaps there is some probrem in glyph(?) or font or browsers(?) 
or implementation?.

I tested as follow;

on win2000 mozilla and IE, &#x301C; is looking like little bit
bold weight. then these browsers showed;
 (kara) = (&#xFF5E; FullWidth Tilde)

but win2000 + cygwin + emacs21 + w3m;
 (kara) = (&#x301C; WaveDash)

on Linux + XEmacs21.4.10 + w3m;
 (kara) = (&#x301C; WaveDash)

on Linux + Mozilla1.1;
 (kara) = (&#xFF5E; FullWidth Tilde)
