Yes, it's true. but as abiword are doing so, even if the
users does't choose locale-specific font, if it can print
out, they would be happy. for example Japanese people can't
choose a Helvetica font for printing, it's well-known
problem. but abiword can do so. this will save on choosing a
font. most applications is handling "Helvetica" and
"Courier" by default. as I do so, temporarily we can avoid
several issues for gettextize, but there is no fonts which
can absolutely print out for CJK (except uses Japanese
printer for Japanese printing. but people which don't have a
printer without Japanese printer may want to print it out).
So that I would like to claim it again. we should support it
without choosing locale-specific font. I think that abiword
will help those framework.
