The following problems have been encountered with Z and I Emulator for Web running in a Japanese language environment:
On Japanese Windows NT 4.0 and Windows 98, with host code-pages 930 and 939, when host code-points X'41F2'-X'41FA' and X'446D'-X'446F' are copied through the clipboard, they are always converted to NEC-Selected characters, not IBM-Selected.
The scenario is as follows:
The problem is that any character from the katakana character set that is displayed in the 3270 Display session is displayed as a rectangular box.
The fix is to use the IBM Java 2 plug-in rather than the Sun Java 2 plug-in, and to use the IBM WorldType font Monotype Sans Duospace WT J.
To use the IBM Java 2 plug-in rather than the Sun Java 2 plug-in, you must first obtain and install the IBM Java 2 plug-in for Linux. Then follow these steps:
pluginssubdirectory in the netscape install directory:
mv libjavaplugin_oji.so libjavaplugin_oji.so.backup
ln -s /opt/IBMJava2-131/jre/bin/libjavaplugin_oji.so libjavaplugin_oji.so
To use the IBM WorldType font Monotype Sans Duospace WT J, you must first download the font file mtsansdj.ttf from the Z and I Emulator for Web Support page at: . Then follow these steps:
mtsansdj.ttf to the
of the Java 2 plug-in install directory.
The path of the
fonts directory is:
fonts directory, run the Linux utility
ttmkfdir twice, as follows:
Restart the browser.
If you type a backslash with either a US 101-key or Japanese 106-key keyboard on Japanese Windows NT or Windows 98, it displays as a Yen sign. This seems to be a problem with both Netscape 4 and Internet Explorer 4.
Because of a JVM problem, the following double-byte characters appear as backslashes (\):
This is a browser limitation on Korean and Japanese Win32 platforms.
On AIX (Japanese EUC or 932), with host code-pages 930 and 939, IBM-Selected characters cannot be displayed correctly.
You must therefore change the shift or IME status manually to input characters in a particular shift status.
If you want to enter Japanese characters, press the double-byte character set (DBCS) input key. A text field displays. You can type any Japanese or alphanumeric characters into this text field using the Input Method provided by your operating system. You can also use any Z and I Emulator for Web key functions in this text field. you do not need to close the window to perform another session operation.
To close the window, press the DBCS Input key again.
When you close this window, make sure you exit the Input Method you used to input the Japanese characters. If you do not exit the Input Method, you might not be able to type characters on the session screen.
Some browsers, such as Internet Explorer 4.0x and Netscape Communicator 4.0x, support the Japanese character input method to type characters into a Z and I Emulator for Web window. In this case, you don't need to use the Japanese Input window.
The following restrictions apply to Japanese Unicode Extended code pages (1390 - Katakana Unicode Extended / 1399 - Latin Unicode Extended) support:
When Z and I Emulator for Web host printing is used in Windows Native Printer Interface Mode with the MS Mincho font (which is the Z and I Emulator for Web default font on Japanese Windows) or with the MS Gothic font, the Euro currency symbol is not printed out correctly.
This problem is that MS Mincho and MS Gothic do not contain the Euro currency symbol.
To fix this problem, install the IBM WorldType font "Monotype Sans Duospace WT J" and select this font in the Font listbox on the Page Setup tab of the 3270 Printer session configuration.
A difference exists between the Z and I Emulator for Windows and Z and I Emulator for Web code page conversion for Japanese codepages 1390 and 1399. An HTML parameter, "UseHodCDRA1399" has been created to enable Z and I Emulator for Web to use the same conversion table as Z and I Emulator for Windows when the parameter is set as false.
