Starting the 'canna' server should handle that ok, I'm all english 
here, but the stuff that comes in in chinese or kanji/katakana seems 
to be correctly displayed in the pictogram format here, ditto for the 
big-5 stuff from the kr sites and the increasing amount of arabic 
spam too.  I cannot read it of course as this old dog didn't get any 
non-english in school, not enough years attended, and never been out 
of the country (US) any farther than half an hour in Tijuana Mexico & 
that was 30 years ago.  But its still interesting to me that its 
apparently correctly displayed here.
