What we have been doing when this happens, is we add the title from the 245
to the label title field in the check in record, then change the label type
(A,B, or C)"title comes from bib record" to label type (D,E or F) "title
comes from label title field" and that has worked perfectly. You may need
to change label types to include a note if you need the note printed on the
label from time to time, but it has resolved this issue nicely. We also use
the Okidata 320.

I can't address whether you can change what Mill. sends out. As to the
rest of the equation:
How are you printing your labels now? Options are:
1) Attached print, text
2) Attached print, graphics
3) System printer
4) Workstation JetDirect, via Print Wizard
Probable results for each:
1) Will never work. Your printer doesn't understand Chinese.
2) Might work, if you can choose an appropriate font, and you're using a
proper printer driver.
3) See 1).
4) Will work. Print Wizard will detect that the Chinese characters are not
in the primary font (usually Courier New, or printer specific Courier
10CPI), then find an appropriate font on your Windows machine, then make
the printer print that in graphical mode. This will also work for Russian,
Japanese, Korean, and ALL the diacritics. Arabic and Hebrew might take
some fussing around.
