On other Japanese pages, I get garbage characters where the Japanese
should be. On this page, I can't display it at all. Switching to raw
mode or toggling into CJK mode doesn't change anything. If I set the
display character set to euc-jp, shift-jis, or transparent, then
it displays OK (like other Japanese web pages). For example, I can
display the following page without problems with my usual settings
(display charset=cp437):

That site has content type "text/html". I think that the charset
appended to the content-type is causing the problem.
