Reply to: Chinese titles and punctuation not displaying in pdf (DITA).

Character Map screenshots showing:

A: “Arial Unicode MS” is being searched. Unicode characters with a description containing “fullwidth” are shown. In my copy glyphs for all of the “fullwidth” characters defined in Unicode 5 are in there.

B: “Times New Roman” is being searched. Unicode characters with a description containing “fullwidth” are shown. This font contains no glyphs for these characters.

A text file containg characters in the following ranges is loaded into Notepad, showing:

C: “Arial Unicode MS” has all the glyphs (note the uniformity).

D: “Times New Roman” does not have the glyphs for the fullwidth forms.

E: This is “Times New Roman” again, but this is running on a machine with the optional Windows “Install files for East Asian languages” option turned on (part of Regional and Language Settings in Control Panel). Note that the “ASCII” range uses the Times New Roman font while the “Fullwidth Forms” is using a different font.
