What steps will reproduce the problem?

3. go to reviewboard and click "view diff"
What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
Chinese characters were expected to be correctly displayed in the side-by-
side "view diff". Unfortunately, they were not. English words were nicely
shown without problem.

Please provide any additional information below.
The files in svn repository were UTF-8 encoded, as well as the generated
diff file. And the encoding of the page in browser were set to UTF-8,
Chinese characters outside the side-by-side "view diff" were correctly
shown, e.g, those in Summary, in Comments, or in reviews.
