This is about SVN r7211.

The "Browse" page (帮助->用户手册->浏览) seems to work fine, yes.

The "Getting started" page (帮助->用户手册->开始使用) shows lots of errors due to wrong encoding or a missing font ('AR PL New Sung') in my system. Changing the document language to simplified chinese (文档->语言->简体中文) didn't solve anything, but changing the font (I tried "Hiragino Mincho Pro") apparently did.

Was your problem a font problem?

Both inside man-manual.zh.tm (displays correctly) and man-getting-started.zh.tm (displays wrong), the font is set to "fireflysung", which is the old family name for the new "AR PL New Sung", did you see any errors in the console related to the loading of this font?

I do not know which mechanisms are in place for the automatic substitution of fonts (which font is being used if New Sung is not found?), but we might want to warn that a font wasn't found in a more visible way, i.e. other than a log to the console which most people won't see or understand:

For reference (source: google translate)

帮助->用户手册->浏览 = Help -> User Manual -> Browse
帮助->用户手册->开始使用 = Help -> User Manual -> Getting Started
文档->语言->简体中文 = Document -> Language -> Simplified Chinese

OS: archlinux
TeXmacs: the latest from svn
Language: Chinese

Browsing the document by 帮助->用户手册->浏览, TeXmacs will select Chinese as the Document Language automatically.

However browsing the document by 帮助->用户手册->开始使用,TeXmacs didn't do it automatically. To show my document in Chinese, I have to select 文档->语言->简体中文
