Using W2K and IE6, if you have a CJK-B font configured for "User Defined"
scripts under the "Options : Fonts" settings, and manually select the encoding
for the page as "User Defined", then the second CJK-B character in each box
(just above the gif image) displays just fine.
The top character in each box appears to be encoded as GB-18030 (e.g. GB-18030
0x95328236 = U+20000), and the second character is encoded as hex NCR values
(e.g. 𠀀 for U+20000).
If GB-18030 is selected as the encoding for the page (as explicitly given in the
file), then IE won't display the CJK-B characters correctly (even if you
configure a CJK-B font as your default font for displaying Chinese), but you can
copy and paste them to a Unicode editor, where both the GB-18030 and NCR encoded
forms of CJK-B characters will display correctly with an appropriate CJK-B font.
If User Defined is selected as the encoding for the page (either manually or by
changing the meta tag in the file to charset="x-user-defined"), then the
GB-18030 encoded characters turn to gunk, but the NCR representations are
displayed using whatever font you have configured for user defined scripts, and
if that is a CJK-B font then hey presto !
