You will find life *much* easier if you use UTF8 for your charset encoding
of your XML and output. It supports Japanese completely and is XML's
native encoding. If you need to transform SJIS to UTF8, you should look
for a Perl module named 'Jcode' at CPAN (Or alternatively a module I just
uploaded named Unicode::MapUTF8 which wraps Jcode and other Unicode
related modules in a single simple API).
