That's just the HTML output.

The Chinese source code is shared between zh_CN and zh_TW. See e.g. 


The document social_contract.wml contains e.g. conditionals:
我們將[CN:盡最大努力:][HKTW:力盡所能:]. It looks to me as the text is
encoded in Big5 and I failed to convert your UTF-8 text into Big5.

Sorry, I don't know what to do. What's the current status of [1]? Is it
completely wrong or only very minor parts? I looks OK for me :-))
