That's such a vague question that it's hard to answer -- certainly I've
never had any particular problems with the above (though the only time
I've ever seen _all_ of them in a single file, is in the `HELLO' file
that comes with emacs).

But for my standard daily usage, everything seems to work fine, with no
font tweaking or whatever.  Sometimes I get spam email that emacs fails
to decode correctly, though.

[I do (set-language-environment "Japanese"), which may affect this]

Your original message alluded to problems recognizing certain
encodings; that should be easy to report as a bug -- send a document
which emacs fails to recognize, which it probably should.
