I have just bought a pocketbook pro 612 but i found that the webbrowser can not support Chinese. i have reset the setting of the browser and changed preferred Encoding to Chinese BIG5 and have tried very other Encoding, but the Browser of PB pro 612 can not support Chinese webseit also. Someone can tell me why?

Fonts in PB don't support Chinese, Japanise und Korean. You can't use your own fonts in web Browser. So you can't read chinese webpages in web browser in PB. It would be good that this problem would be fixed quickly, but... it seems that the technical support team has no interest in this problem.

I don't know if this could help with the browser but we discussed previously on the argument and we came up with something for 60x/90x series. I think could work with 612 too, I think they're based on the same software.

EDIT:
the browser as is apparently is not affected by changes referred on the link, but user Atango succesfully used other tricks to use Korean fonts on Midori browser, see:

Which version of firmware do you use?
For older versions (2.0.x), the default browser is midori and you can use chinese fonts by installing rias' modified midori browser

New 2.1.2 firmware differentiate between touch and non-touch screen devices. I guess, 612 should use arora browser which I have no information at all. There is no actually working webbrowser for 60x/90x in the fw 2.1.2.

The modified midori is not working at the new firmware. It is started, but it does not respond to any key except the "exit" button.
