WoW language packs?

The above chat took place in a 10man Malygos PuG I joined, where the raid leader had warned me (and another guy) that they would occasionally be typing in Japanese.

I had expected them to type English characters for the Japanese sounds - eg "Hajimemashite" - but what showed up instead was the bolded "?".

Until now, I hadn't realized there were additional language packs for WoW (or not the US version, anyway.... I'd expected the EU people to have French/German/English on the same servers).

Pretty nifty way of communicating with your friends, I'd have to say - unless someone else has that particular language loaded on their version of WoW, they won't be able to tell what you wrote!
