pxufont – Emulate non-Unicode Japanese fonts using Unicode fonts
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.
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.
