This is a case of there being many rdf/xml renderings for the same 
thing.  In Protege 3, it looks like the native writer uses the &#... 
encodings of Chinese characters.   This is probably what is being used 
by the Code->Show RDF/XML source code menu item.  But the jena writer 
(used by default) will write the characters using utf-8.  Most text 
editors will see utf-8 correctly.  You can switch between the jena 
writer and the native writer in the OWL->Preferences->General settings 
(near the bottom).
