Last I heard, Win98 does fix the problem mentioned below although I have not
tested it personally.

The CyberBit 1.1 font is the same regardless of the language version
Chinese, Traditional Chinese, or Japanese). The only thing different
files is the readme/install/instructions.
However, if you're using Windows 95, you're out of luck-- it can't
Asian languages within the same font (our Win 95J machines crash
hard when we do
this) due to limitations in its handling of CodePage mapping.
Whether or not Win
98 will fix this remains is unclear (to me).
Windows NT 4.0 handles the CJK in CyberBit no problem however.
There's also a major problem with it in that it omitted the
(necessary for CJK), and the half-width dakuon and handakuon marks
Japanese). We've been waiting for the next release to correct this.
