Thanks for all your answers. I find that this file tidy.conf decide which
charset to be used on html.
After I changed almost file from encoding="ISO-8859-1" to encoding="UTF-8",
that is , I did this command:

sed -i "s/version=\"1.0\"\ encoding=\"ISO-8859-1\"/version=\"1.0\"\
encoding=\"UTF-8\"/g" `grep version=\"1.0\"\ encoding=\"ISO-8859-1\"

then those Chinese characters can be show on html pages. But it's not
perfect. Because the charset of html is still iso-8859-1, and Chinese
characters on html page's souece were displayed like these:

Then I modyfied tidy.conf, changed input-encoding and output-encoding
from latin1 to utf8, as a result, Chinese characters can be showed
normally on both html pages and html page's source.

And then I modified stylesheets/lfs-xsl/chunk-slave.xsl, change from
select="'ISO-8859-1'" to select="'UTF-8'" for some special symbols to
be show. Till now, everything on html for Chinese characters seems
perfect :)
