    Oops, my mistake. I had forgotten that I had deliberately deleted the registry
    settings that control how IE deals with surrogate pairs sometime ago in order to
    prove a point (that IE won't display surrogate pairs without them ?). Anyway,
    restore the registry to its original state and Frank's page displays OK without
    any tweaking whatsoever - both NCR and GB18030 encoded CJK-B characters render
    correctly with my preferred CJK-B font.

    To install the registry keys necessary for IE to display surrogate pairs simply
    copy the code below to a file named "something.reg" and double-click on it.
    Replace "Code2001" with the name of your preferred Supra-BMP font if necessary.

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\LanguagePack]

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\International\Scripts\42]
