Description acli 2003-09-08 21:49:19 UTC
I start by typing some Chinese text and then proceeded to change the writing
direction via Format | Page => Writing direction => Right to left (vertical).

Now I select the text I typed and try to change the font. It turns out that for
a lot of fonts, OpenOffice does not correctly rotate the CJK characters.
However, for *some* fonts, OpenOffice does correctly rotate the CJK characters.

I don't see any pattern as yet, as to which fonts give the expected "correct"
behaviour. In particular, commonly-found fonts (Chinese fonts from Arphic,
Japanese Kochi fonts, Korean Baekmuk fonts, etc.) do not seem to give the
correct results.

Screen shots attached. The expected "correct" output should contain CJK
characters that look like horizontal lines.

Sorry to have forgot to check for duplicates in my own reports. But this one is
still "unconfirmed," so I am closing this (older) one instead.
