RE: Need help with a Font problem
How do you "type" the Japanese characters? You have a special Japanese keyboard and you use the special entry fields? it works for me if I merely copy/paste the characters (this from the Asahi Shimbun, using "Droid Japanese", I don't know what that means:

Japanese fonts are not like Winding/dingbats fonts where ASCII code for letters (ABC...) translate to something different. They are real fonts, with glyphs for A/B/C and glyphs for the Japanese characters are the required character codes. If you want to use them to produce Japanese characters, you have to use the character codes of the Japanese characters. But you can't produce these with just a QWERTY keyboard, you have to cut/paste them from somewhere else (which is what I did above), or use some application for this (maybe they are available thru the "Character map" in the "Accessories" in Windows).
