Ok, I have downloaded the font. Now what? How do I install it?
This is somewhat beyond the scope of this FAQ, but a good start would be to go to the control panel of your computer. From there you should have a font folder. Dropping the file into this folder should make it appear in the font menu of your applications.
I have installed the font, I can see it in the font menu of my application, now how do I use it to type a japanese word?
Sorry, but this is really beyond the scope of this FAQ. You should turn to the web site of your operating system's manufacturer for more information on this subject. This is generally refered as installing a japanese IME (Input Method Editor).
I can't find any roman letter, digit or punctuation in the font!
These glyphs were missing from the original fonts from Jim Kurrasch. If you find someone skillful enough to draw these glyphs, then I will have them mapped with the rest.
Some kanjis are missing from the font!
If it is missing from the font then it was probably missing from the original fonts from Jim Kurrasch. If you find someone skillful enough to draw this glyph, then I will have it mapped with the rest.
Some glyphs are not nicely space separated! Some overlaping each other, etc.
You are right! There is definitly a spacing problem but I can't correct this because I don't know much about font design! If you can determine where this problem comes from, then contact me and we will publish a better version of the Sword Kanji font.
Some glyph is being mapped to an improper unicode!
Drop me a line with the code of the ideogram, I will have it remapped correctly.
I inspected the inside of the font file, and found out that some glyphs are not mapped to any unicode yet?
Right, I could not find the unicode for some of the glyphs that were present in the
original fonts from Jim Kurrasch. These are glyphs number
$0197, $0199, $019C, $01A0, $01A2, $01AF, $01B9, $0288, $02B4, $0361, $0401, $04CD, $061D
and all combinated kanas (sha, shu, sho, etc.)
If you can find out what are the unicodes for these then drop me a line
Have you noticed any other problem with the Sword Kanji font?
