JSI Tip 7162. Characters in the subject field of a certificate do not display correctly on Windows NT 4.0?

When you view a certificate on a computer that runs an operating system earlier than Windows 2000, and the subject field of the certificate contains UTF-8 characters, you will experience this behavior.

To display certificates that contain UTF-8 characters, you must be running Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, or a newer Microsoft operating system.
