I think these don't have the right encoding.  My Emacs chooses a
font with the encoding "Big5-0".

I think there are tools out there to create fonts of one encoding
from font fonts of another encoding (as long as the intersection of
common characters is big enough that it makes sense).  But i can't
help on this topic.

On Debian there are various xfonts-intl-* packages.  They don't look
that nice but AFAIK they cover most scripts.

Also you may find this page interesting:

Try this: Start xfontselect and set "rgstry" to big5, now pick any
of the not grayed out fonts.  Also i think you can drop the "ascii"
part (Emacs should pick the default font for ASCII):

Alternatively (an ugly workaround) you can start emacs within a
Unicode enabled XTerm:  xterm -u8 with the font you have choosen
(the iso10646-1 one).  Though i don't know how good the support for
asian scripts is (there are other terminal emulators that may be
better, e.g. rxvt-unicode or mlterm).
