    I have a document on Microsoft Word 2002 with a couple of Chinese characters in it. I'm running XP. They appear as just some rectangles, even though the task bar in the bottom of the screen identifies the language as Chinese (Taiwan). That's the traditional Chinese characters. I've installed the OGAPluginInstall.exe file and restarted Word, but the problem remains.

    I'd appreciate it very much if anyone has any advice on this. Thanks in advance,

    Duh - Let me just put this here just in case it's useful for anyone else. Go to Control Panel and click 'Languages.' Click the option for installing Asian languages. It's about 250 Mb.
