Maybe the Chinese font has Latin characters that have somehow become
the default. I've received email with large line-drawing-style
characters, and I believe those have come from people using a big5
charset. You can force iceweasel/icedove to use a specific font with
something like the following in <profile>/chrome/userChrome.css:
font-family: Nimbus Sans L !important;
font-size: 14px !important; }
That *should* set the font for everything -- menus, pages, dialogs --
but I'm not positive. Unfortunately, the last I looked Mozilla's
chrome was essentially undocumented.
