I use R 2.3.0 under windows.

> Sys.getlocale()

[1] "LC_COLLATE=Chinese_People's Republic of

China.936;LC_CTYPE=Chinese_People's Republic of
China.936;LC_MONETARY=Chinese_People's Republic of
China.936;LC_NUMERIC=C;LC_TIME=Chinese_People's Republic of China.936"

> localeToCharset()

[1] "CP936"

Now I want to use JGR,which uses UTF-8 encoding. So when I use save.image function to save something containg Chinese character with R,and then load into JGR, the Chinese character will not display correctly.Of course,I can use iconv to convert the character making it readable.But is there any better way to this?
