You need to set the Zope character-encoding to a Unicode encoding. I use
utf-8 and it works. UTF-8 is not very efficient for Chinese but I do
know it works! You do this two places in Zope:
1: in the zope.conf there should be a line
If there isn't, add it. If it says something else, change it.
2: In the root of the Zope Management Interface, choose the properties
tab. In it, add a new property called MANAGEMENT_PAGE_CHARSET of type
'string' with value utf-8.
3: restart Zope
