Does FreeBSD support UTF-8 locale well?

I try to use zh_CN.UTF-8 as locales, but the FAT3 data can not display
correctly. When I use zh_CN.EUC as locale, things get better, but not
all the Chinese characters display correctly.

In terms of UTF-8 support, Linux seems better than FreeBSD. How do you
guys think?
