That web page has becom inaccessible.  I found another copy at http://
That copy gave me the remaining clue I needed -- that it works in the 
en_US.UTF-8 locale, but not the en_CA.UTF-8 locale, unless you add a line 
to the ~/.scim/global or /etc/scim/global file to tell it en_CA.UTF-8 is 

That example-for-japanese section doesn't seem to be available from the 
more official-looking http://www.debian.org/doc/manuals/reference/

Has it been removed?

Section 9.7.9 of the http://www.debian.org/doc/manuals/reference/ has a 
discussion of how to set up X for Japanese, which would seem to interact 
at a different level of the system, and seems rather more complicated 
than the one described in an-example-for-japanese.
