For those who don't want to read all that, mostly it's a question of going to the View (or equivalent) menu on your browser, selecting Encoding (or equivalent), and then selecting Chinese Simplified (GB), since that is usually the font I'll be using. Another option to try is Chinese Traditional (Big5).
