Re: FW: japanese unicode problem....

this display problem caught my attention.
Globally I would suppose, that some fonts may
support only the most widespread Kanji in use
(in Japan these would be the 1945 Toyo Kanji
and 285 additional Kanji used for names).

There may be additional Kanji-sets, which are
more rare, and therefore to be added to fonts
by vendors in step by step processes (version-wise).
The ? In place of a kanji makes me wonder, because
usually a gettamark should replace a non-available
glyph within a CJK-text stream.

I would try out other fonts of other vendors,
however I don´t have concrete hints, as I am
not a Java-user.

Please correct me, if my idea was wrong for
any reason. I am just curious on the solution
of this display problem.

Kind regards

Jens Siebert
