Yes, the changes are better. But only the normal font has the correct
font encoding (GB-EUC). Others are still in GB as the same as the wrong
encoding in my original fonts.dir. I did not test the abiword printing
at the time cause GS-CJK was not announce yet then. Now we can test
CJK printing too.

And for the font names, I talked with Yasuhiro TAKE, the author of
GS-CJK.  He told me that the PS fontname fetched from Arphic's TTF is
'GBZenKai' for typeface kai. So maybe we will use the GBZenKai for
Kai font or add aliases in GS-CJK to link Arphic-KaiGB-GB-EUC-H with
