I noticed the Mule-UCS package enables even Emacs 22 to handle
GBK text with the `utf-8' coding system.  If you have an
interest in it, you can get the most recent and bug-fixed
version of the Mule-UCS package from:


To use it, consult the lisp/README file, install the package,
and put this line in your ~/.emacs file:

(load "un-define")

By this and the following may possibly enable you to read
Chinese web pages more comfortably.

(add-to-list 'w3m-compatible-encoding-alist '(gb2312 . chinese-gbk))
