ZXjafont Package

: Set up Japanese font families for XeLaTeX

Font selection using fontspec package is very flexible and powerful. But users who are used to p often feel the setting bothersome, as there is no default working font setting (that involves Japanese fonts) and they always must give one. This package prepares some popular font settings as “presets” and allows users to use them simply by referring to their name.
