Mozilla can not display Chinese in Slackware9.1


Hi all
Mozilla just show chinese a word like 4 number in the square box. (I have set the encoding)
I found some threads here, but still can not work.
I added three frontpath in XF86Config:
FontPath "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/local/"
FontPath "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/misc/"
FontPath "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/75dpi/:unscaled"
FontPath "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/100dpi/:unscaled"
FontPath "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/Type1/"
FontPath "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/CID/"
FontPath "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/Speedo/"
FontPath "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/75dpi/"
FontPath "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/100dpi/"
FontPath "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/cyrillic/"
FontPath "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/TTF" #add
FontPath "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/util" #add
FontPath "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/encodings" #add

The chinese font is in /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/encodings/large.
Although so many FontPath has been setted, but only little Font can be choosed in X software. How can I solve it? Thanks for giving any suggestion!

did you check the character coding in
View->character coding?
you sometimes have to manually tell mozilla that the page is in chinese - and I think there are several different ways of encoding chinese so try go through them one by one. Also, see if you have selected chinese font for chinese in Edit->Preferences->Fonts

Did you install the language package when you installed linux? If so, it should work.

Another solution, try to download netscape 7.1 and install it.

I use full install when I was installing Slackware9.1
After that I removed KDE by using swaret --remove kde

I just download the last verion of OPERA, it works !!! I can see the chinese word.

But I still don't know why Mozilla can not ?
