I get "??word??" in AbiWord and I think that this is because I don't have
any Chinese fonts or locales installed. In HTML, I get "ê¤ê¥wordê©ê¥" which
looks Chinese enough for me :-)
This is wierd. I can import Chinese word documents now just fine, but not US
english ones... ugh.. need to fix this bug.
