Sample docs are attached to issue 22452. Now i need to get my hands on
a palm.
Comment 2 philipp.lohmann 2003-11-27 11:30:54 UTC
Christof suggested that perhaps more information can be gotten at which points to Adobe's
support forums.

For information :
In a PDF with CKJ, sometimes you need to download language pack for 
Chinese Traditional font, Chinese simplified font, Korean font, 
Japanese font.

Because of limited resources we have decided to set this task to OOo2.0.
It isn't a general problem, because this problem doesn't occure in a desktop
version of the Acrobat Reader.
Comment 5 thorsten.ziehm 2004-08-20 09:42:53 UTC
Because of limited resources this task have to re-targeted to target 'OOo
Later'. If somebody can be found, who can implement this task, it can be
re-targeted to OOo 2.0.

Just some information for people who have similiar problem, changing the font
you are using might be a good workaround. I know Acrobat need an extra package
to display Chinese character but such packages are not required if you use one
of the font I recommened (I tried both on English-only adobe reader and looks fine!)

I recommend ShanHeiSun <>
and Ming <>. Both are
free to use. Ming is governmental font from HongKong, the other one is something
like GPL. Both fonts I used many years with OpenOffice (and also fine with PDF

The advantage of the two fonts are for their coverage. They conver really a lot
of Chinese characters, the top coverage Chinese fonts that can be obtained for
free. The problem with character coverage is that, when you found some Chinese
character is missing in one font, it is usually too late (difficult to change
the whole document and also past documents' font). So better choose wisely in
the begning. I used to use other fonts (like arphicfonts) and now I fall back to
only use the two (Mostly I use UniFont/ShangHeiSun, sometimes I use Ming).
