    Japanese fonts in Linux


    Hi mates.
    I was written the other day a message (in Mozilla) in Japanese, to a friend, and in the allowed fonts (EUC-JP) it seems many people using Windows can't read it. Although I don't think this has to do with the difference of operating systems...
    Anyway, he told me that the most common font for Japanese he has seen is Shift_JIS. I have searched a lot, but still can't find where to download it for Linux (and I am sure it must be available)...So I was wondering if someone of you knew about an URL for downloading fonts...

    Thanks so much, dudes.

    A-W-E-S-O-M-E!!!
    I only found things talking about those fonts, but only "plain text" (no links),
    I couldn't find anything although I searched quite much.
    Thanks so much for ur help, mate!
