Create String from BIG5 hex value

Hi JavaGurus!

I have two characters encoded in BIG5 hex code:
1) a578
2) a55f

These codes represent two characters in Chinese.
I need to know the smartest way of having them converted to a String?

The String constructor can handle the following:
new String(byte[] bytes, String charsetname) ...

Best regards
