Dear wizards--

We have a pair guest students from Taiwan staying with us here in Silicon Valley for a few months. They would like to keep in touch with folks at home, and can do so with Yahoo Mail. We have Big5 and MingLiu fonts. That's all fine.

BUT, when they try to use a BBS, their idea would be to do so by using TELNET to activate it. When they do so, the screen they get is full of characters that are not Chinese, but make no sense in English either.

A friend suggested SIMPTERM, but that suffers from the same behavior.

Can anyone suggest how to use TELNET, or to find an equivalent, for Chinese?
