  Sorry, I'm out of date.

  Yes, PDFlib-4.0.2 can support OpenType with TT/PS outline.
  And xpdf-1.0 has HKSCS CMap file in Chinese-Traditional

  FT2 support OpenType 1.3. But this does not mean X/xpdf can
  support OpenType(at least now, sorry I'm not very sure, but
  xpdf has CFF code in it).

  Maybe you can:

  1. embed the OpenType font via PDFlib.
  2. convert otf to TTF/CID-Keyed font with PfaEdit(?).

  If you don't embed the fonts, xpdf will use font loaded by X(
  I mean Chinese font), it means you need a TTF with extra HKSCS
  glyph. So maybe 1. is the better solution.
  * Can XFree86-4.2.0 load CFF?
  FYI only, maybe I'm wrong.
