The big porblem is that:
The GB 2312-80 charset is quite out of date. It contains much less
characters that new Chinese standard called GBK. Ever some frequently
used characters cannot be found in GB 2312-80, :-(
But I cannot find GBK specs in ftp.unicode.org or other sites, so maybe
it's not a widely accepted standard by most offical standard
organizations just as I guess. While Mic$osoft take this standard since
Windows 95 Simplified Chinese Edition, and name it 'Codepage 936', which
can be found at ftp.unicode.org.
