Problem viewing Traditional Chinese ebooks

I added my .PRC and PDF ebooks in Traditional Chinese (encoded with Big5 or UTF-8) to my library but the contents changed to monster characters when viewing with the internal viewer of Calibre.

I wonder if Calibre supports traditional Chinese ebooks with Big5 and UTF-8 encoding and I would be grateful if anyone can offer a solution to the above problem.

Try changing the fonts in the ebook-viewer preferences to ones that support chinese characters.

Dear Kovidgoyal,

Thanks for your advice. I have tried other fonts in the ebook-viewer but the problem still presists. I would be grateful if you can offer any other solutions.
