No, I haven't.  I cut and pasted the Chinese text into a GT window.

My point is that I can't tell Chinese mojibake from Chinese non-mojibake,
unless I know what the underlying content is.  At any rate, there are no

Is not a patron, my Lord [Chesterfield],        John Cowan
one who looks with unconcern on a man           http://www.ccil.org/~cowan
struggling for life in the water, and when      cowan@ccil.org
he has reached ground encumbers him with help?
