I installed Foxit under wine/linux, and it took both of these two things to
display the broken pdf:
- install the foxit cjk pack
- run wine in the simplified chinese locale (LC_ALL=zh_CN wine "Foxit
Reader.exe")

Apparently Foxit use the windows system locale to guess "winansi" should be. It
appears that Adobe Professional does the same thing: detect that it is running
under localised Chinese Windows, and make a guess from the system locale if
"winansi" isn't winansi.

That's a very dubious thing to do - to guess the encoding of pdf's from the
windows locale setting.
