 That may be the easy way out, but it doesn't help me figuring out the
original problem.  If it is necessary to trick around with "Transparent",
then it cannot be said that ac-0.74 works as it's supposed to.  You
brought up the problem, now you have to help me to reproduce it.  :)

Please make a short document that gives trouble available via a http
URL (and check that ac-0.74 still gives the wrong output when you access
the file through that URL, and that an older version gives the right
output when you access the file through that URL).  Put a
<META HTTP-EQUIV="content-type" CONTENT="text/html;charset=XXXX">
in there with the right XXXX, unless it is necessary to omit this in
order to reproduce the problem.

If for some reason you cannot make it available for http access, try
to uuencode and send the uuencoded file by mail.

I am surprised that "Transparent" as used by you has any effect.  Or
rather, I would be surprised to learn it has any other effect than
"Garbledeegook", or any other non-recognized name.  (Only "x-transparent"
should be recognized in a special way in the ASSUME_ settings.)  But
that's a different topic, you shouldn't have to use any of them.
No ASSUME_anything whatsoever should be needed to get Japanese text
displayed as long as the Display Character Set is set right and the
Raw 8-bit or CJK m(O)de toggle is ON, just as before.  If that is not
the case, we have to find out why.
