      Description

      The current Java SJIS/Unicode mapping is based on the Unicode Consortium
      table that is not consistent with the mapping used by Microsoft products,
      such as Japanese Windows 95. This inconsistency creates huge inconvenience
      for Japanese text processing because majority of Japanese text processing
      still relies on the built-in assumptions of character encoding, such as
      full/half-width representation.

      Also the mapping inconsistency between Java and Microsoft products creates
      inconsistent visual representation on Microsoft platforms.
