      (2) "AWT TextFields", (3) "Swing Components", (4) "Java2D Stroke", and
      (5) "Java2D Fill". Each of the panes presents an string using
      (1) Plain, (2) Italic, (3) Bold, and (4) BoldItalic fonts. Generic fonts

      Login to zh.UTF-8, zh_CN.UTF-8, or zh_TW.UTF-8. Run the test. Chinese characters are
      not rendered in the panes for AWT Labels, Swing Components, Java2D Stroke,
      Java2D Fill

      Same pattern observed in zh_TW.BIG5.

      Definitely a JDK bug. This is a bug for zh_TW.BIG5 on a Solaris 7 system, too.

      On an x86/Solaris 8 (build 34) system using JDK 1.3 build M, the behavior has
      changed. The three UTF-8 locales now seem to be functinal with one exception.
      The exception is in zh_TW.UTF-8 on the Swing Components tab under the column
      marked Plain. The Chinese is mangled there. BIG5 still needs to be checked.

      In Solaris 7/zh_TW.BIG5, JDK 1.3 build M, there are problems in three panes:
      Swing Components, Java2D Stroke, and Java2D Fill. In each of these, only the
      column marked Plain is in bad shape.
