This (&#14;) is not a Chinese character, it's a control character (see 
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shift_Out ). It's either a wrong input 
file, which means that the file should be checked so that no control 
characters are present, or the file is read using the wrong encoding.

With FOP 0.95 you don't need to generate metrics files anymore, just use 
the font file directly.

Yes, FOP works very well with Chinese text.
