'Font Substitution section' has the same options as the top family. I didn't
find any special Chinese font
in 'Font Substitution section'.    Still all Chinese characters are shown as
two small box [] [].     I can view Chinese Characters correctly using
Mozilla.  Do I need to download some fonts for Qt/Mythtv?

Thanks a lot,
