Help specifying Simplified Chinese font in Joomfish

Post by toxicfrog » Tue Nov 15, 2011 5:38 pm

Hello all,

I am working on a Chinese/English site, and the client wants to use a different font for Chinese.

It looks like I can specify the font in /language/zh-CN/zh-CN.xml

Here's what I see:

Code: Select all

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<metafile version="1.5"  client="site" >
	<tag>zh-CN</tag>
	<name>简体中文(中国)</name>
	<description>Simplified Chinese language file for Joomla! 1.5.22, translated by Joomla Chinese Translation Team (<a href="http://www.joomla.cn">囧啦!中国</a>).</description>
	<version>1.5.22</version>
	<creationDate>2010-10-25</creationDate>

	<metadata>
		<name>简体中文(中国)</name>
		<tag>zh-CN</tag>
		<rtl>0</rtl>
		<locale>zh_CN.utf8, zh, zho, zhi, zh_CN, zho_CN, zhi_CN, simplified_chinese</locale>
		<winCodePage>cp936</winCodePage>
		<backwardLang>simplified_chinese</backwardLang>
		<pdfFontName>gbsn00lp</pdfFontName>
	</metadata>
	<params></params>
</metafile>
So here are 2 questions:

1. Which value(s) can I change to specify a different font?
2. Which of the web-safe fonts is closest to Kaiti? I don't see Kaiti in the web-safe font families (SimSun, NSimSun, SimHei, PMingLiU and MingLiU), so which of those should I use?

Thank you very much for any help!

*edit: I don't read or speak Chinese, by the way!
