for me ,I install hkscs support in my windows 2000 from microsoft
and get the hkscsm3u.ttf there and is able to use it in linux and
load that font in xfs-xtt.
gtk+ application can now show hkscs font :)

Also if I use the .tte file downloaded from the hong kong government,
the Xft seem have problem in loading the fonts and I can't find the entry
of the hkscs fonts in .xftcache, and there is no problem for the .ttf font
i get from microsoft.
I am able to enter Hong Kong Font in coming gtk+2 application with Xft
enabled too

for the mozilla, i 'm not familiar with how mozilla search font and
unable to make mozilla to use that hkscs fonts and it get the hkscs fonts
from -cbs-song-medium-r-normal-fantizi-*-*-*-*-c-*-cns11643.1992-*

btw,is it able to make the chajei input method in xcin to input
hong kong fonts too in zh_TW.Big5 too apart from zh_HK.BIG5HKSCS?

I'm now using locale zh_HK.BIG5HKSCS in order to input HKSCS word in xcin
though I need to make a symbolic zh_HK zh_TW in /usr/share/locale
and copy all the *.mo in zh_TW.Big5 to zh_TW to make the translation work
though it won't work for other translation which don't use the gettext
way..(e.g I may need to create a copy Name[zh_HK]=xxxx from
Name[zh_TW]=xxxx in *.desktop)
