Default Fancy Chinese/Unicode font?

I'm looking for a fancy "display" type Chinese font (or a Unicode font with a good Simplified Chinese range in it).

I want to use it to create a little illustration for this post of mine about Internet cafes in Beijing - I've included the appropriate characters for "Wăng bā" ( 网吧 = "Internet cafe" ) in the post, but the software (they use Textile markup) at 43places.com doesn't provide a way to enlarge characters in posts, and the Chinese characters are hard to discern (especially for those not used to reading them) in the normal font size.

Oh, and it has to be free, of course...

Any hints anyone?
