Could you please send here the tex source including the Japanese character? (I
don't speak Japanese) Have you tried to include UTF-8 character in the source

You said to try UTF-8, but platex does not support UTF-8.
It support only EUC_JP and Shift_JIS.
Comment 4 Jindrich Novy 2004-12-16 05:46:04 EST
Unfortunately I'm not very much experienced with platex and the Japanese
environment within tetex. I suspect some missing fonts?

Matsuura, could you help?

I'm not upgraded to FC3 yet.
But I'm using tetex-2.0.2-26 on FC2.

As far as I tested with tetex-2.0.2-26 on FC2, attachment 108680 [details] was successfuly
typesetted and viewed properly with pxdvi.

Did you install VFlib2-conf-ja?
Comment 6 MASA.H 2004-12-16 06:13:14 EST
Oh, I'm sorry.I didn't install VFlib2-conf-ja.
After install,I can get right preview.
I didn't know pxdvi uses VFlib2.
