Please use ttf-arphic-uming (18MB) instead of ttf-arphic-bsmi00lp, which
is for Traditional Chinese only. ttf-arphic-uming combined
ttf-arphic-bsmi00lp and ttf-arphic-gbsn00lp (for simplified Chinese)
plus some extra glyphs into a unified one. 

If only ttf-arphic-bsmi00lp is included, some Chinese characters for
zh_CN cannot be displayed as shown in:

In the screenshot, Both the Chinese (Simplified) and Chinese
(Traditional) labels should have the same amount of Chinese characters,
but one of those character in Chinese (Simplified) was missing due to
missing glyphs in ttf-arphic-bsmi00lp.

The alternative is to include both ttf-arphic-bsmi00lp and

best regard.
