I am using fonts from Agfa/Monotype: "Monotype Duospace Sans WT J" and "Thorndale Duospace WT J".
Don't know if they are generally available.

With the first font in Notepad (Win2k) I just verified that a line of "abcd" appears as wide as a line of "三上" in the same document. (I hope I can send these <4E09 4E0A> via NS 6.2.)
