      You are using DBCS_CHT for "big5-hkscs". That's Chinese-Taiwan. Are
      you sure this is exactly the same as "big5-hkscs" (Hong Kong?)?

      I suspect that "big5" and "big5-hkscs" are slightly different, otherwise
      there would not be a different name. Handling it mostly like big5 might
      mostly work, but cause subtle problems in some cases. Isn't there a
      better solution?

      Rule #1: Don't give somebody a tool that he's going to hurt himself with.
