Dear Lior,

I do not know where is the bug, but I think that it is very strange that
OpenOffice can not use other japanese fonts such as ttf-kochi-mincho,
ttf-sazanami-gothic, or ttf-sazanami-mincho to display Han
characters ("kanjis") in japanese text. Expecially that the japanese
syllabic characters ("hiragana", "katakana") are displayed correctly
(hiraganas, katakanas and kanjis are usually provided by the same font).

If you read the bug report with a browser (sorry, I wrote "nautilus"
instead of "epiphany-browser" in my previous message), you will see that
the characters are correctly displayed: this indicates that an
appropriate font is available and that OpenOffice can not find the

Wether this is a bug in the fonts or OpenOffice, I do not know ;)
