Why can't I get my printer to print Chinese characters?

I created a remote output queue on the iSeries. I then sent the spool files to an HP LJ4100 with Jetdirect and a built in Chinese fonts library. For the English documents it works perfect, but it won't print any Chinese character. Do you know what's going wrong?

Assuming that your fonts are installed correctly, the next thing I would check is CHRID parameter on your OVRPRTF command to make sure that you are generating your spool file in the proper character set.
