If it's all about having characters displayed where they're currently not, 
then you might want to use Arial Unicode MS (msttcorefonts).

I don't know about the solution of Firefox (Icesomething), but if all it 
offers is differentiation between asian and non-asian it's not gonna be of 
great help to a lot of people.

I never changed local stylesheets and I don't know if you can actually tell 
your browser how to display stuff through that, but if it works you might 
think about doing something like the following to your stylesheets:
span[lang|=zh-Hans-CN] { font-family: 文鼎PL简报宋; }

Till now Qt/KDE/Konqueror really annoy you if it comes to displaying different 
languages. Hopefully KDE 4.0 including Qt 4.0 will change this.
