Try this, Garrett:

on mouseUp
   put empty into fld "fontList"
   repeat with i = 1 to number of lines in the fontNames
     put uniencode(line i of the fontNames,"Japanese") & uniencode 
(cr,"ANSI") after fld "fontList"
   end repeat
   set the textFont of line 1 to -1 of fld "fontList" to the textFont  
of fld "fontList","Japanese"
end mouseUp

This gets it *mostly* right, I think.
