Well, I use SCIM to input the characters and my locale is de_DE.UTF-8.
As the input works everywhere (OpenOffice, vim in Xterm, gvim etc.) I'm 
positiv that the problem is the lacking support of UTF-8 encoding of 
Chinese in ConTeXt and that this is not a problem of the encoding being 
wrong.

Looking at the cp936 to Unicode table 
(http://www.unicode.org/Public/MAPPINGS/VENDORS/MICSFT/WINDOWS/CP936.TXT) 
one sees that they are not the same.

A rough big5 to Unicode table can be found at
