GS-CJK: Please test.

[ i'm only subscribed to debian-devel, so please cc: me on the other lists for
  every reply. Thanks. ]

Hello, there.

GS-CJK is the extention for GhostScript to handle CJK TrueType fonts.
This extention just consists of a patch to a certain PostScript file
included in a standard GhostScript distribution. 

Please look at: http://arashi.debian.or.jp/~take/index-zh-tw.jpeg
You can possibly find it is a hard copy of gv and the displayed .ps
is a Traditional Chinese (TW) version of the top page of www.debian.org.
This .ps file is generated by Netscape and directly rendered with
ttf-arphic-bkai00mp and cmap-adobe-cns1 by GhostScript, and is never processed
by tools like ttfprint, which i understand renders the image of each
character and embed it in the .ps file. GS-CJK enables for GhostScript to
directly handle PostScript files including Chinese/Japanese/Korean characters.

BTW, to make it easier to set up the CJK TrueType font for GS-CJK,
Debian Font Manager (defoma) which i've been working on and just
announced at debian-devel is needed. In addition, TrueType font packages
must use defoma framework. CMaps are also required.
All of the necessary stuffs are found at:
defoma, defoma-gs, defoma-ps, gs-cjk-resoure and cmap-adobe-? are needed.
ttf-arphic-bkai00mp and ttf-arphic-gkai00mp are DEFOMA-aware TrueType
font packages. 

(Netscape seems to generate abnormal PostScript files regarding with
Simplified-Chinese web pages unfortunately. GS-CJK cannot handle them.)
