In short:

For historical reason, in Japan 0x5C and U+005C is ambiguous.
They may be backslash and yen sign.

But we have workarounds for this problem.

However webkit make 0x5C of EUC-JP as U+00A5.
U+00A5 is absolutely YEN SIGN.

This is separete backslash from 0x5C
and against both de fact and de jure standards,
and breaks copy and search.

Desirable behavior is adjust to IE and Firefox:
maps 0x5C to U+005C and don't hack moreover.
