PerlScript and Localizationby Lexicon (Chaplain)

Lexicon has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I am trying desperatly to enable reliable Japanese support into my Perlscript. Do any of you have experience with getting perl to play nicely with a 2-Byte character set under PerlScript in IIS? Currently, IIS does nothing short of completely freak out. Consider this code:
Most of you will see what Perl probably see...a bunch of line noise. I can leave the code alone, hit refresh, and Perl/IIS will generate different error values on different reloads. Usually it's a simple Syntax Error or </code>Cannot find string terminator '"'</code> but sometimes it will:
and sometimes, just for spite, it will work. ;-)
Perl and IIS are fine. If I take out the Japanese, I've no problems. Actually, if I put the Japanese inside of <%= 日本語 %> it seems to work fine, but that is kind of limiting when I need to send e-mail. I've tried embedding the Japanese in HEREDOC, qq() and others. No luck. I'm tempted to try to start parsing it out of a file, but one can imagine how ugly that might become.
Thus I ask: I know PerlScript doesn't really support Japanese yet, but is there any reliable way I can force it to do so anyway?
