 In all cases where CJK characters are rotated, note that the names of
fonts begin with '@'. I don't know exactly how it works, but under
MS-Windows, fonts whose name begin with '@' have their CJK characters
rotated by 90 degrees(for use in vertical writing). Try to use 'Andale
Mono WT J' instead of '@Andale Mono WT J' and CJK characters should be
rendered upright.
