AFAIK, bash doesn't really support input methods / multi-byte locales.
I only tried bash-2.05 with UTF-8 locale on Solaris 8, but this seems
to confirm it (the system ksh did much better, and ksh93 in contrast
was too insuficcient either).

So if you eventually can't find anything by starting with the Chinese-HOWTO...
