The most obvious... Did you install any chinese fonts?

Another question is, are you running gnome 1 or gnome2?  gnome2's
handling of international characters is pretty nice.  And I haven't had
problems with mozilla handling foreign fonts recently.  More problems
with encoding.  Sometimes you have to let it know what the page is
encoded with.

Good luck.
