Thankfully, that was a false alarm. :-) I was apt-get'ing with my Debian
system at home, and there was some changes in the font manager that my fonts
were temporarily unavailable. Chinese text are shown properly again once
that was fixed. :-)

Anyhow, attached are the profiles for zh-CN and zh-TW.
There is also a patch for en-CA: I have never seen anyone using A4 paper
in Canada, maybe except my Dad who brought some paper from Hong Kong. ;-)

Canadians have switched to metrics for the most part, but Canadians only
use Letter and Legal papers. A4 etc. are very rare. Anyhow, since Letter
sized paper is exactly 8.5" x 11", I have changed the default unit to inch
too so it works better with Letter paper. :-)
