You didn't tell us if you used GB2312 or Big5; I assume it is Big5 (Big5
causes sometimes problems, as it doesn't follow EUC standard (it comes from
DOS world in fact)).

So, if it is Big5, and provided your font is correct (or if it is a TTF
font, provided your font server has correct support for Big5 encoding);
then it may be a problem of the Big5 locale definition in the X server.

What X server do you use ? If it is XFree86, can you tell us the version ?

Older versions of XFree86 had wrong support for Big5.

(Also check that your locale setting is correct; but I suppose it is)

Can you also send me some sample text so I can see if I can display it or not.
