Hi Mitch,
Thank you very much for your reply. :)
Actually, I am using Joomla RC4.
The web page shows the Chinese very well. 
But in pdf, all the Chinese Characters are meaningless rectangles.
Really fructrating... :(
Could you please give me some help?
Thank you very much.

I'm assuming you're using Joomla 1.0, which isn't UTF-8 aware. That
was the main impetus which caused Joomla 1.5 to happen, which is UTF-8
native under the hood. Give 1.5 a shot (Release Candidate 4 is the
most curent release) and let us know if that solves your problem.
