When I use Iceweasel (Debian version of Firefox), I can see Chinese characters found on this page, but not when using Chromium. I instead see rectangles. This is on Debian 7 (Wheezy).

I am having many problems reading Chinese characters not saved in the UTF-8 format. After doing the "file" command, I realized that nearly all of the files that I have problems reading in Ubuntu are ISO-8859 English text, with CRLF, NEL line terminators.
My system is Gentoo 64bit, Chromium 32.0.1700.19. With Chromium 31, it was able to display Chinese in the title correctly. But since version 32, Chinese are displayed as blank in the title, while the Chinese in the webpage can be displayed correctly.
Some old Chromium bugs says font configuration could cause this problem.

Every time I send Chinese text messages, people can receive it, but when people send me Chinese messages, all I see it *** instead of 你好吗? All Chinese texts replace the hanzi (characters) for ******* asterisks. It really bothers me that I can't read characters.
Anyone know how to fix this? is this even fixable? is it a Metro issue?
Hi folks, I'm still using squeeze and plan to upgrade to wheezy/jessie next year (when squeeze will reach its EOL), anyway if you're using Debian's packaged Chromium (the one on Debian repos) could you do me a favour and tell me the result of visiting www.html5test.com, especially the audio and video part? I attach what mine shows in squeeze for a reference.
I have a friend that I would like to chat with on skype. She speaks Chinese but understands a little bit of English. She prefers Chinese and in order to make it easier I would like to know if there is a translator for skype. (The thing is that she writes Chinese in the Latin alphabet characters.
I know this is one of those topics that gets discussed over 'n' over, but I really would like to read your comments regarding these 2 browsers. Personally, I have been using Chrome/Chromium for a while, but every now-and-again I like to switch back to Iceweasel.
