Well, the lack of zh_TW.UTF-8 is IMHO unfortunate - but really, it is not
needed for this purpose. All that is needed is:
* links to be able to deal with html that uses utf-8 from the
ideographic areas of unicode
* have the installation program consistenly use utf-8
Display in web browser is normaly not related to locale - i know my
browser displays spam html mails coming from east-asia just fine 8-)
