Hello fontconfig, I am a Simplified Chinese user, and I want font substitution for CJK fonts to be implemented. Most Chinese fonts are mainly divided into four styles: 1. Song (Pronounced `soon'), serif, also called `Ming' in Taiwan and Hong Kong, `Mincho' in Japan, `Batang' in Korea) 2. Hei, sans-serif, also called `Meiryo' in Japan, `Dotum' in Korea 3. Kai, brush handwriting style, likely to be serif 4. FangSong, likely to be sans-serif 5. Others such as Li, Wei, etc, is not discussed here. I have sorted these fonts according to my preference, however, I do not know a lot about what fonts users in TW, HK, JP, or KR prefer. Hei: WenQuanYi Micro Hei (Free font) WenQuanYi Zen Hei (Free font) Hiragino Sans GB (Used in OS X Lion as default) Microsoft Yahei (Used in Windows Vista and above as default) STHeiTi (Used in iOS as default, in OS X and in Windows) SimHei (Used in Windows) Droid Sans Fallback (Used in Android as default) Song: STSong (Used in OS X and in Windows) SimSun (Used in Windows) AR PL UMing CN (Free font, this is the worst choice because Arphic's CN fonts are in TW style although it is marked `CN') Kai: STKaiti (Used in OS X and in Windows) KaiTi (Used in Windows Vista and above) KaiTi_GB2312 (Used in Windows XP and below) AR PL UKai CN (Free font) FangSong: STFangsong (Used in OS X and in Windows) FangSong (Used in Windows Vista and above) FangSong_GB2312 (Used in Windows XP and below) What I want to be implemented is, when one of the fonts is missing, fontconfig will search for others for substitution. For example, if a document requires SimHei which is not installed currently, fontconfig may use WenQuanYi Micro Hei instead. And if Micro Hei is missing either, Zen Hei will be used. Sincerely yours.
