[www.huaren.us] loads fine just a bit slow, [www.wenxuecity.com] loads very slow, looks like it takes very long to parse the whole chinese characters.
I can imaging that it isn't workable to surf chinese site's in this tempo.
Maybe it will help when you try to install scim look at: [scim.freedesktop.org]
It is originally made for KDE but now it's also available for other desktops and available by apt-get:
apt-get install scim

succes.

SCIM is for inputting those languages. Just install chinese fonts, and those sites would look ok.

ttf-arphic-ukai and ttf-arphic-uming are two fonts that I suppose will cover the charset necessary for those sites.
