I'm on a Mac with OS 10.4.10, Rev 2.8.1. Made a new stack with one  
text field (no specific settings) and then put Chinese via the  
message box using

set the unicodeText of fld 1 to "[Chinese unicode characters]"

Tried it with Chinese text of different length, including three  
characters. No problem here, except that the Chinese in the message  
box turns into garbage after I hit the return key.

If it's a small stack you might send it to me so that I can have a  
look at what "doesn't look right."

All the best,
