 I just use a font which contains enough parts of Unicode (Bitstream Vera 
Sans for Kmail, package is in sarge). I just swapped, as Arial (the one 
from MS I think) could handle Japanese but not Chinese.

 I really would like to :-))))  But I don't even have time to try to learn 
something as 'basic' as Spanish and at the same time improve my German, 
so Chinese and Russian will wait... (I'm French and only Americans are 
worse than us for foreign languages ;-)

 Cut-and-paste from websites ;o)  (I tried to add something from Cambodia, 
but all their websites are for foreigners, in English or French).
