Thanks for your answer Martin.
My problem is not the Asian fonts, but Hebrew ones :) But I guess the status is the same.
I have following 2 questions:
1. Is there anyway to add encodings to the opera browser ? Did Nokia really released a browser that does not support extended encodings ?
2. Will the news reader be able to use the TrueType fonts ?

Thank you again

You can install TrueType fonts into /home/user/.fonts, e.g. Arial Unicode. But the Opera browser will still miss the encodings, so that most Asian websites won't be viewable.
But the other applications will benefit from the fonts, e.g. the file manager will be able to correctly display Chinese filenames.
