Steps to reproduce

URL:

Repro Steps:

  1. Set the language preference (Internet Options >> General >> Language) as zh-tw. Note that in Windows 8 and 8.1, language preference in IE is always the same as the system’s without registry tweaks.
  2. Open a utf-8 encoded, lang-tag unspecified site, such as the Chinese version of WHO website (http://www.who.int/zh/).
  3. Observe text in the same paragraph. Different weights and subtle difference in style can be seen.
  4. Then change the language preference to zh (or zh-cn, zh-hans).
  5. Open the webpage again.
  6. Compare the results.

Expected Results:

Pages in Simplified Chinese being rendered with Simplified Chinese font, rather than mixed with Japanese and Traditional Chinese font. The behavior should not be affected by the user’s current language environment.
(Or similarly, Traditional Chinese pages rendered properly rather than mixed with Japanese font if user’s prefered language is zh-(hans)-cn)

Actual Results:

Dev Channel specific:

No
