I think not only small fonts but also large fonts in Netscape will
look ugly without Japanese truetype fonts.

'xtt-fonts' package is available.  Unfortunately, it is not a part
of official Debian distribution.  Please check Debian JP Project
http://www.debian.or.jp/ and you will find the package.

Note that XFree86 3.x cannot handle Japanese truetype font.  You
will need xfs-xtt package.  If you are using XFree86 4.x, use "xtt"
module instead of "freetype" module.

Documents in user-ja (potato) or language-env (woody) package may
help you.
