I solved my problems for displaying chinese characters. I simple put a chinese font in the fontdir of the system, and all works! I'm impressed, i am able to display chinese characters without too much efforts.
Now i have the problem of the Input Method.
Now i don't use any input methods, and i don't know minimally what i need and how it works.
How I can handle complex combinations of characters like normal typing in korean or chinese?
How input method work with QWS (non X11 system) and what is the best solution?

>> Basically your problem is the following:
>> * If the character to be displayed is in the "Latin 1" Unicode range, then use font A
>> * Else (character is in "Asian language" Unicode range): use font B

>> That is, you would iterate over each character and whenever the Unicode range changes, you would set the font accordingly. Something like the following could work:
>> <span font="A">Latin 1 text followed by </span><span font="B">asian characters.</span>
>> Depending on the Qt API used to display text (e.g. QLabel::setText) that HTML formatting is then evaluated/considered.
