Description of problem:
The japanese fonts were moved from /usr/share/fonts/ja to /usr/share/fonts/japanese. But the CIDFnmap.ja file that tells, e.g., mozilla where to find the Japanese fonts didn't reflect those changes. As a result, Japanese fonts aren't printed from firefox, mozilla, et al.

- Use /usr/share/fonts/japanese instead of /usr/share/fonts/ja
[jat48@thacker ~]$ rpm -ql fonts-japanese | grep ttf
But in /etc/ghostscript/CIDFnmap.ja :
/Kochi-Mincho (/usr/share/fonts/ja/TrueType/kochi-mincho-subst.ttf) ;
/Kochi-Gothic (/usr/share/fonts/ja/TrueType/kochi-gothic-subst.ttf) ;
The file needs to be edited to point to the right path. Otherwise people can't print from browsers.
The same thing goes for the Chinese and Korean font packages.
