Chinese Book Names

I can download Chinese public domain works from Project Gutenberg and read them on Kindle for PC just fine, but the book names are displayed as some question marks only.

Any way to fix this?

Thanks.

The three commands will help. Just input everyline ended with the ENTER key in the search textbox.
;debugOn
~changeLocale zh-CN
;debugOff

Restart the kindle, the book names will come back.
You can send your Chinese books to @free.kindle.com, it will give a perfect performance.

three commands + @free.kindle.com=no 口口, no??

Thanks. But I'm using the desktop version only so...

I hope Amazon and other ebook vendors improve their foreign language support. It's not that Unicode is still in its infancy.

Nice weekend.
