Hmm, ok. well, CVS dia works fine when I chose correct font
only. if not so, dia show the empty square. exporting png
also works. but it seems that ghostscript can't parse PS and

No, I should said 'locale-specific font'. and if we use
downloaded font for those languages and we will implement
the feature which can print out without choosing
locale-specific font like abiword (of course using
downloaded font is different from abiword), can we use those
fonts without download if we use compound font?
