******************************************************************************
This FAQ uses Shift-JIS encoding to display Japanese kana (characters).
Browsers such as Mozilla Firefox (www.mozilla.org/products/firefox) support
CJK encoding inherently, but common browsers such as MS Internet Explorer
require you to update your system (windowsupdate.microsoft.com). Otherwise,
I recommend you download a Japanese-English word processor called JWPce.
It is available from: http://www.physics.ucla.edu/~grosenth/jwpce.html

My Japanese is very basic so don't expect the translations to be super
accurate. This FAQ is to be used with the Mario Tennis FAQ/Guide written by
Shdrlm3 and I, to help you get through the Japanese version of Mario Tennis.
