The set of the Ja­panese log­i­cal fonts (JFMs) that are used as stan­dard fonts in pTeX and up­TeX con­tains both Uni­code JFMs and non-Uni­code JFMs. This bun­dle pro­vides an al­ter­na­tive set of non-Uni­code JFMs that are tied to the vir­tual fonts (VFs) that re­fer to the glyphs in the Uni­code JFMs. More­over it pro­vides a LaTeX pack­age that re­de­fines the NFSS set­tings of the Ja­panese fonts of (u)pLaTeX so that the new set of non-Uni­code JFMs will be em­ployed. As a whole, this bun­dle al­lows users to dis­pense with the map­ping setup on non-Uni­code JFMs.

px­u­font – Emu­late non-Uni­code Ja­panese fonts us­ing Uni­code fonts

The set of the Ja­panese log­i­cal fonts (JFMs) that are used as stan­dard fonts in p and up con­tains both Uni­code JFMs and non-Uni­code JFMs. This bun­dle pro­vides an al­ter­na­tive set of non-Uni­code JFMs that are tied to the vir­tual fonts (VFs) that re­fer to the glyphs in the Uni­code JFMs. More­over it pro­vides a pack­age that re­de­fines the NFSS set­tings of the Ja­panese fonts of (u)p so that the new set of non-Uni­code JFMs will be em­ployed. As a whole, this bun­dle al­lows users to dis­pense with the map­ping setup on non-Uni­code JFMs.

Such a setup is use­ful in par­tic­u­lar when users want to use OpenType fonts (such as Source Han Serif) that have a glyph en­cod­ing dif­fer­ent from Adobe-Ja­pan1, be­cause map­ping se­tups from non-Uni­code JFMs to such phys­i­cal fonts are dif­fi­cult to pre­pare.
