    I think the first thing you need to make sure is you did properly
    install all of the following:
    a. you are running on W2K or WinXP
    b. install the surrogate support from microsoft if you are running win2k
    c. configure your font in the IE font pref

    Try to do the following
    1. open notepad
    2. select the surrogate font
    3. open Netscape 7 or mozilla
    4. view thc url I gave you in mozilla
    If you did a and b (even without c) you should see the chinese text there.
    5. click the [text link]
    6. copy and paste the text into your Word XP
    7. Do you see it correctly in Word XP.
    8. Do the same thing and put into Notepad
    If that don't show you, then the problem is really you don't install the
    thing right. wrote:
