      Description

      Someone has closed bug 4172480 as a duplicate of 4168102. Then I can not
      reopen this bug. Bugtraq told me that if I have any question, I can contact
      with the Bugtraq Development Group. I have file this bug again.

      JDK Version: 1.2fcs-I
      OS: Solaris 2.6
      Locale: zh & C

      In this build (1.2fcs-I) build, all AWT components can not display
      ASCII characters in Solaris 2.6 environment.
      If we use "xset fp+ /usr/openwin/lib/X11/fonts/TrueType", then the
      AWT Components can display ASCII characters correctly.
      It is not acceptable to ask all the users to set font path in their system
      to make awt work correctly.

      I don't think it is a duplicate of 4168102. Because in build
      1.2fcs-H, all awt application can display ascii correctly without
      setting up extra info in fontpath, but
      in 1.2fcs-I build, all awt applications failed. Yes, there exists
      the same work around for the two bugs, but you can not say that
      they are duplicate just because of this.
      By default, in solaris 2.6 system, fontpath does not contain
      "/usr/openwin/lib/X11/fonts/TrueType" dir, while in 1.2fcs-I
      build, it is required as an necessary condition that if you
      want awt to display ascii, you should add that dir to fontpath,
      but solaris 2.6's default setup does not meet this requirement,
      so, by default, in solaris 2.6, all awt can not display ascii
      characters in this build. It is a big problem. It is not acceptable
      to ask all solaris 2.6's users to set fontpath as you guys did.
