Chris, thanks! I also had not noticed that I can change the font
setting in the Insert > Symbol dialog from "(normal text)" to "(Asian
text)" for access to the CJK Extensions.

Well, I have not tried to install these on Windows, but I can tell you
that on Mac OS X 10.2.4, I can only have one of these ICS fonts
installed at a time (and for some reason it doesn't appear in the
Character Palette, only in the Font panel itself). So try installing
ICS1 by itself and see what happens...

This is a Big5 site, not Unicode. So it is displaying U+5B7D in Big5
encoding (code point C45E), not Unicode.
