Thank you very much for your comments - which we hope will encourage others.
We understand that, in fact, you've configured 2 of your computers: 1 running Windows XP as its operating system, 1 running Windows Vista. Is this the case,
and did you find configuring Windows Vista more difficult than Windows XP?
The opening & closing of your 'post' appear in non-Roman characters. Would we be correct in thinking that you intended to include Japanese text in these 2 areas?
Could it be that the non-text characters which appeared instead of Japanese are due, perhaps, to not accessing the language palette before you typed?
We'd be grateful if you could confirm that your 'configured computers' can produce Japanese text for our Message Board.
