The following problems have been encountered both with Z and I Emulator for Web running in a Chinese (Simplified) language environment and with Z and I Emulator for Web running in a Chinese (Traditional) language environment.
When the Z and I Emulator for Web client is run on the Windows platform with Internet Explorer 6.0 running as a Java 1 browser, and the locale is Chinese (Simplified) or Chinese (Traditional), Ctrl+Alt is detected as Ctrl if Ctrl+Shift or Ctrl+Space has previously been pressed. This problem was originally seen on Windows XP.
Normally this scenario works correctly; that is, the key sequence Ctrl+Alt is associated with the specified function, such as About Z and I Emulator for Web.
However, if the user has pressed Ctrl+Shift or Ctrl+Space one or more times at any time after the session was started and before the 6-step scenario described above is started, then the problem occurs.
The problem is that the key sequence Ctrl, rather than Ctrl+Alt, is associated with the specified function.
The reason for this problem is a bug in the Java 1 JVM (JVM level 3805) of Internet Explorer 6.0. When the user presses Ctrl+Alt after either Ctrl+Shift or Ctrl+Space has been pressed one or more times, then the Java 1 JVM passes Ctrl to the application, rather than Ctrl+Alt.
Note: Ctrl+Shift or Ctrl+Space is also the key sequence in Traditional or Simplified Chinese that toggles the IME window open or closed.
After the problem described above has occurred, pressing Ctrl+Shift or Ctrl-Space any number of times does not fix the problem.
In the environment in which this problem occurs, do not use Ctrl+Alt as an assigned key sequence.
On Traditional/Simplified Chinese Windows, the IME toolbar might launch and turn to On when you single click icons on the Z and I Emulator for Web desktop. However, when you launch Z and I Emulator for Web terminal windows, IME will be turned to Off and you can input SBCS characters correctly.
In IBM Java 2 for Linux , the files font.properties.zh and font.properties.zh_TW are not configured correctly for IBM WorldType fonts. Consequently DBCS characters are not displayed correctly.
To resolve this problem, download and install IBM Java 2 for Linux.
For instructions on modifying the font.properties.xx files, see IBM WorldType fonts for Linux for the DBCS languages and On a Windows client with a Java 2-enabled browser, some GB18030 4-byte characters are not displayed correctly in 3270 and 5250 display sessions.
