BTW, it might be safer to use "zh_TW.Big5" instead of "zh_TW.big5".

Please check two things:

  1. If something like xa or cv or xa+cv is loaded, *kill* it.
     (I wonder if cpanel still loads it or not... I dare say it shouldn't
      use xa+cv any more.)

  2. In Netscape, go to menu: View -> Character Set -> Western (ISO-8859-1).

Of course... few, if any of us, hang out there.  :-)

Hope this helps,
