Yes, I noticed that too..

It appears that moving the directory to zh_CN is the cleanest solution.

Without editing anything else (except the Makefile, replacing zh by zh_cn)
did the trick: fixed compilation warnings and docbook-generated text
without any need to fiddle with main.xml (which is not version controlled
anyway).By the way, we have different files for the help messages too (zh_TW and
zh_CN -- note the uppercase letters) so that would keep things consistent
I intend to commit this change soon if nobody gives a reason why this
might be wrong.
Torinthiel, thanks for help on this :)
