Subject Re: Japanese postscript fonts

Getting a font is one thing but the bigger problem is that FOP doesn't
support Japanese for PostScript output because it is still restricted to
use Type 1 fonts (PostScript fonts) that use WinAnsiEncoding. The second
step after finding a font would then for you be teaching FOP how to make
use of it. Better would probably be to teach the PSRenderer how to
embed TrueType fonts.

Your alternative is to generate PDF and convert it to PostScript
afterwards (using GhostScript or whatever).
