We add GB18030 support into Mozilla and also add 32 bit cmap support on
windows into Mozilla about a year ago. The Linux and Mac 32-bit cmap
support is a little bit behind
I think we first have GB18030 encoding support in Netscape in Netscape 6.2
You should be able to see whatever the characters in Netscape 7 if your
system have a font which contains the glyph
Try the following test page
It is coded according to the hard copy of GB18030 spec. (and I also add
more pages which beyond the GB18030 spec to test the > BMP part)
