Hi Martin, 

We are running a jabber server in Japan -- jabber.jp.
In Japan, Yahoo! Japan provides its own Yahoo Messenger service.
So, we modified Yahoo Transport to connect to the Yahoo-J server
and we are trying to send/receive messages in Japanese.

Yahoo-J uses SHIFT-JIS encoding. (Japanese major encoding)
In former days, we could send/receive Japanese messages
using SHIFT-JIS encoding via Yahoo-J Transport. 
Clients are JIM and WinJab.
But for some reason (transport's version or something),
now it works wrong. It's a question.
