The device can display Chinese fonts in some applications (all
applications that use Pango for font rendering).
This can be achieved by copying a TrueType font with Chinese
characters (e.g. Arial Unicode) to /home/user/.fonts/
The webbrowser on the Nokia 770 cannot handle Chinese, though.
Maybe Nokia left out CJK-support intentionally because the
font files are quite big and space is limited on the device.
