Thanks for the comment!

Let me clarify the requirement of font-specific
transcoding. Sorry, but I'm not sure if I understand your suggestion

1. if the font known hacked (e.g., MS P Gothic), do backslash=>yen
2. we do the transcoding described in 1 only on Mac. (I don't see any
   reason we should do this hack on Windows, please correct me if I'm
3. stop encoding-based transcoding completely.

I've noticed the 2 may be objected by this reason:

I think this isn't an issue of a browser and even IE doesn't support
this behavior. Please see the following URL with IE, copy the filepath
from the EUC iframe, and paste it into the textarea in UTF8 iframe. I
think you will see yen signs become backslashes.
