Hey Gabe,

I have the same Chinese display problem as you had: some chinese
characters are displyed by dots. I know it is a font problem. Unless I
set the chinese fonts such as AR PL as default, the chinese characters
became normal, but the English ones became awful.

Did you meanwhile solve your problem? If so, how?
