This is not a problem, just something I have noticed.
My desktop computer has Windows XP. I have just bought a laptop with Windows Vista.
On this computer (XP), Chinese characters in ProZ show up as question marks.
On the other one (Vista), they show up as Chinese characters.
I have not done anything in Vista to register Chinese as a language on the computer, as I don't know any Chinese.

Missing Asian fonts in XP Jul 13, 2008

Hi Jack,

The most obvious reason are missing Asian fonts in XP; in XP you need to install an additional multilanguage support package to see various additional fonts properly. The multilanguage support must be installed in Vista so you can see the fonts unavailable under XP.
