    Chris, thanks! I also had not noticed that I can change the font
    setting in the Insert > Symbol dialog from "(normal text)" to "(Asian
    text)" for access to the CJK Extensions.

    Well, I have not tried to install these on Windows, but I can tell you
    that on Mac OS X 10.2.4, I can only have one of these ICS fonts
    installed at a time (and for some reason it doesn't appear in the
    Character Palette, only in the Font panel itself). So try installing
    ICS1 by itself and see what happens...

    This is a Big5 site, not Unicode. So it is displaying U+5B7D in Big5
    encoding (code point C45E), not Unicode.
