My job is to split the following string which contains some chinese
chars(GB code) and make an array:

"sz000503,????,2005-01-31 15:01:01,<font
color=009933>11.780</font>,11.950,11.800,<font
color=009933>-0.170</font>,11.640,11.930,<font
color=009933>-1.42%</font>,61454,7231.56,11.770,11.790,<font
color=009933>-60.52%</font>,11.77 / 96,11.76 / 197,11.75 / 195,11.79
/ 177,11.80 / 611,11.81 / 424,11.73 / 85,11.72 / 70,11.82 / 528,11.83
/ 873"

my own script looks like this:
def make_array(orig_string)
   
   rb_array = Array.new
   elements = ''
   orig_string.each_byte {|s|                          
      if sprintf("%c",s) != ',' then                  
        elements = elements + sprintf("%c",s)     
      else                                             
        rb_array.push(elements)                       
         elements = ''                                    
      end                                                     
   }
   return rb_array
end

with the following results:
["sz000503", "\272\243\272\347\277\330\271\311", "2005-01-31
15:01:01", "<font c
olor=009933>11.780</font>", "11.950", "11.800", "<font
color=009933>-0.170</font
>", "11.640", "11.930", "<font color=009933>-1.42%</font>", "61454",
"7231.56",
"11.770", "11.790", "<font color=009933>-60.52%</font>", "11.77 /
96", "11.76 /
197", "11.75 / 195", "11.79 / 177", "11.80 / 611", "11.81 / 424",
"11.73 / 85",
"11.72 / 70", "11.82 / 528"]

Almost right except chinese chars.Then how to save chinese?
