1. Download the SC_Song font here
2. Copy this to your
\Windows directory on your mobile device
3. Apply this reg file: [1.reg SysLink.reg]
Or do it manually:
In your WM5 registry, under
add a new key call
~FontLink. Then, under this newly added
~FontLink key add another key call
~SystemLink. Example, you should now have the following in your registry
Now add the following 4 "String" values to
[Name of value] '''~[Value (in bold)]'''
Times New Roman \Windows\sunfon.ac3,~SC_Song
Courier New \Windows\sunfon.ac3,~SC_Song
4. Do a soft reset and you are done.
Note: WM5 has delayed registry updating, the registry changes may disappear if you soft reset too fast. Try switching off/on (sleep/wake) or try to modify some settings (like ringtone) before you do a soft reset. If things doesn't work, probably just because of this. Double check to avoid disappointment.
Note: Some devices may need the file
wince.nls to able to view Chinese. Refer to `Multi language support` at the Related threads section below.

aiwan Character Set Support
This tweak will also work with other Chinese based fonts. For example to get a Taiwan style character set (as opposed to the Mainland China character set provided in the SUNGLOBE.TTF file) you can use FontCreator (trial version) to extract one of the fonts from MingLiU.TTF (a Taiwan font provided with desktop Windows OS in Taiwan). Then replace all above references to "SUNGLOBE.TTF,UniSun" with "MINGLIU.TTF,MingLiU". Tested on my HP IPAQ Hx2490B and it seems to work like a charm.
