Description
We need to make Korean a supported language on Mercury in 1.4.2_03.

Currently, Jre is not in capable of displaying Korean(Hangeul) on Mercury due to the lack of font.properties files on the Jre release.


How to reproduce:

Install a mercury build, e.g. build12.
 (let me know if you dont have one)
get a java testsuite with CharView.
log into ko_KR locale(there is a bug in gdm.. before you do that see Evaluation)
run java CharView 
Type AC00 for Korean character range.
find it is not displaying Korean.(Korean is U+AC00 and higher).

EVALUATION

There are two new fonts delivered to Mercury to support Korean which can be properly configured in font.properties files to support Hangeul(Korean).

I have already sent new font.properties files to Murali(###@###.###).
There are two bugs impairing the function along with font.properties files. Please download the following 2 files and copy to the following locations.

/usr/X11/lib/X11/fonts/truetype/fonts.dir
/etc/X11/gdm/locale.alias

and java properties files into ...jre/lib/ .

Run some java CharView classes with text range U+AC00 or higher.

tiger already supports koran on jds, the only thing left is to "upgrade" to
the new delivered korean tt fonts which is supposed to have better quality.
target for tiger-beta2.

The Makefile change was not putback into 1.4.2_04, so even the properties
files are in ws they don't exist in binary. Will use 4978502 to trace this
issue in 1.4.2_05
