Ok ! I will post to the jdbc and odbc thread for help !

But I've created another db using MULE_INTERNAL encoding, the same error
reported, why ?
Why don't Postgres directly support BIG5 in server side as BIG5 is the
main encoding using for Traditional Chinese communities, i.e. HK &
Taiwan ?  As EUC_TW do not have complete correspondings char in BIG5,
this will seriously prevent the Traditional Chinese communities for
using Postgresql !
