Bruno, Thanks so much for the extremely detailed reply. As a very end
user, I essentially know nothing on the font aspect.

After some trial and error, the following lines work (the name is
Homer Simpson in Chinese).

%!TEX encoding = UTF-8 Unicode
\begin{CJK*}{UTF8}{bsmi} % Use default fonts from CJK (see below)
\title{Title of Paper}
\affiliation{Evergreen Terrace}


Guess when the font command (bsmi) is omitted, LaTeX CJK would look
for some default font which is not installed by the current version of
TeXLive by default.
