I'm not able to reproduce the issue in Chrome 14.0.803.0/ Window7.  
Does your system support CJK language/font?

hi, Gamewiza

could you confirm if other non-ASCII text like Greek, or hebrew ..etc text tab title show up correctly? 
try any news link :

see if only Chinese show up as boxes? if that is the case, try re-install your asian language pack. see if this helps fix the issue? thanks for your feedback!

What version of Windows 7 do you have? You know, enterprise, home, etc .. 

Anyway, I believe most versions of Win 7 come with all the fonts installed out of box.

I'm having the same problem, but to change locale to Japanese and go back to Italian didn't help.
Japanese characters were correctly displayed while locale was set to Japanese, once back to Italian, the problem was again there, I see boxes in place of Japanese characters.

I use Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit and Chrome version 16.0.912.75 m.

Duping this to bug 102449 which has more details. IT looks like it's an OS-level issue that affects Windows media player and even IE9.
