OK, I think I know what is going on. According to the w3, "In Japanese and Chinese, inter-word space is not typically rendered at all."

... couple that with the fact with have the spacer hack (spaces in the widget template) to support webkit/safari and we have a problem. If webkit has the same behaviour, we won't be able to use the spacer hack and will need to resort to using margins or something (which was problematic on webkit).

My recent patch should solve the problem everywhere except safari/webkit (assuming the problem exists there). I'm not sure what is responsible for font rendering on Windows... if it is Windows then I presume this problem is present on all browsers? (Will ping Cougar)

I have email confirmation from Cougar that this fix worked for him on whatever browser(s) he tried. We haven't heard details yet but I think this fix can safely go in.
