You're right, of course... but I had tried that, and XeTeX issued the 
same error message... well almost: "! Font \U/stkaiti/m/n/17.28=STKaiti 
at 17.28pt not loadable: Metric (TFM) file or ATSUI font not found"...

This time, though, I ignored it and entered \nonstopmode and 
-consistently enough- nothing came out *except* the Chinese!

I think this rather dodgy behaviour may be caused by some conflict with 
the other packages: I'll investigate...

	Many thanks for your help,
