Could you please send here the tex source including the Japanese character? (I

Created attachment 108680 [details]
This file is my writing report.
THe content is under writing.
You said to try UTF-8, but platex does not support UTF-8.
It support only EUC_JP and Shift_JIS.
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?
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.
