Chinese Font help

Postby Bronson BB » Fri Aug 07, 2009 2:21 pm

So, I was trying to install some fonts last night so I could make some noncanon drink labels for shindigs and stuff.
HDZB_70 on this page for one;
http://www.sino.uni-heidelberg.de/edv/sinopc/chinese_fonts.htm
And every time I try to use it, the best I can get is the NAME of the font showing up in chinese, but the font itself printing in english.

What the Frak am I missing here?

I'm working on this myself. You using Vista or XP?

I downloaded some fonts from the same sight a few months ago and never could get them to work. I'm using Vista.

Please note I still haven't had time to tinker with these and have met with limited success.
