Screenshot from fresh 2004-12-10 RHEL4 Desktop install with ttfonts-ja and OOo 1.1.2-17.6.EL4
Ok, regression is observed when ttfonts-zh_CN is installed and doc is
Ok, the real issue here is that OOo is not recognizing the Kochi fonts
(either Gothic or Mincho) as Japanese-enabled fonts, however since the
zh_CN/zh_TW and Korean fonts have localized font names, OOo is able to
detect that and prefers them to the non-localized "kochi" names. I'll
have to look into how to detect coverage ranges from the font itself,
but I don't think this can get done for RHEL4 GA.
I lied, a fix will be in 1.1.2-18.
1.1.2-18.6.EL4 is in dist-4E
Tested with 1.1.2-18.6.EL4, the attached document does not seems to be
broken anymore. However, the font chosen for the display is not Kochi
Gothic but MS font.
Should it be using the Kochi Gothic font? Is this the acceptable
Yes, because it's an original font name which was used in the
document. and OOo just use the Kochi font for the alternative font.
