what packages to view chinese?

Hi, I'm running debian sarge installed from netinst.
But I cannot view chinese from firefox or any browser.
What packages do I need to make it work? I'm running
xfs, kde if that matters.

as root:

dpkg-reconfigure locales

select all the en_US and the chinese

in the next page choose the environment locale, and reboot, see if that, does it.

google too.

Thanks for the reply. I installed a bunch of ttf-* fonts,
and that seems to have done it.
