Since IMP 3.x, when opening a plaintext message in IMP from IE6 on Windows
98 (presumably anything pre-2K), the message is displayed using an ugly OCR
font (see attached screenshot).
This doesn't happen when using IE6 from Win2K/XP or when using another
browser on Win98 (e.g. Mozilla).
It happens both win Win98 Thai and Win98 US.
I have been told that the same problem happens when using the latest stable
IMP and
other language versions of Win98.
I can provide more information or network traffic dumps if needed.
I had encountered this problem in IMP 3.x and I had "fixed" that
by changing one line in <Horde root>/lib/Lang.php:

header('Content-Type: text/html; charset=' . $charset);
changed to:
header('Content-Type: text/html');

I haven't found any similar hack for IMP 4.x.
The work-around is to check "Ignore font styles specified on web pages"
in Tools->Internet Options->Accessibility in IE.

This seem to be related to a problem I also see rendering Thai language
messages with the proper font and script, but I will investigate this
further and open a separate bug report if required.
