Mkgmap support Chinese??

Hi,

Just found this cool tool, and I tried to use josm created a .osm file (POI in Chinese) and compileed with mkgmap. And the final img file contain "???" for the POI name (in Chinese), I also tried to add --utf8, however still the same. Just wondering if mkgmap support Chinese or not? Or is there any way to do this?

I tried a few more methods:
Adding

--charset=cp-1200

or

--charset=cp-936
However still got the unrecognized name for name using Chinese.

Just want to check if Chinese support in Mkgmap?

Thanks

MkgMap generates map in garmin format. I don't think garmin is supporting unicode. They have special character set for each language.

Contact Steve Ratcliff and ask him.. There is code to handle that but maybe Chinese is special, with multi byte characters and all that.
