[Mapserver-dev] How to Show chinese characters?

The new versions of GD have support for more character mappings which may help you, but as long as the fonts you're using support UNICODE you should be fine. Note that you MUST use TrueType fonts. The GD bitmap fonts support only a limited character set. I've forwarded this to the main list in hopes they may help. I know this question has been asked before...
