What if KMA were to start hosting some Chinese-looking fonts?

You mean for download? Unfortunately I don't have any freeware Chinese fonts, they are all retail fonts. Maybe some others like Jon have some freebies to toss around.

Hmmm... here is a wad of freeware and shareware Chinese fonts that you can dig through. They should all work just fine on Windows.

Zhou Jin Shu has to be the prettiest font I know for Chinese.
But James the link you posted has nothing but dead links when you try to download, let me find a link that works. Oh and windows comes with Sim Sun, Sim Hei, Mingliu and other pretty good chinese fonts.

I found an absolutely wonderful Chinese font site a while ago. It had hundreds of free Chinese fonts, and I know the downloads worked too. I will see if I can find it again.

Ah, that’s it. For some reason it wouldn’t load when I was looking for it again. Must have been down.

I have this program called Unitype. You can pic the languages you want when you install it, and then it gives you fonts to go w/ it. I have Japanese, Chinese, Greek, Tibetan, etc. It's really cool. What's even cooler, is when you type a word in Japanese, say.....san, it comes up with it's Chinese Kanji equivalents too.
