Have you tried njwin? While not being able to input unicode directly it
offers a converter that can convert GB/Big5 to unicode/UTF.

Since this is my first message to the Unicode List, I hope the following
question is neither too basic nor too specific.
Does anybody know whether there is a way to use Chinese Unicode fonts with
an imput method based on Pinyin in the environment of Windows ME/Word 2000?
Unfortunately, Microsoft's Global IME does not offer a tool for Pinyin
input. Recently I have downloaded the FangSong Unicode font from the
Twinbridge homepage, hoping that this font would work with the Twinbridge
input methods. However, when I typed as usual in Word 2000 with Twinbridge
4.0 switched on and chose the FangSong unicode font, the Chinese characters
would appear in the choice list, but they wouldn't appear in the document.
Is my Twinbridge version too old?
I would appreciate any suggestion how to use Chinese Unicode fonts in Word
documents without having to learn Zhuyin or Changjie first.
