Hi Andrew,

I agree that the package dependencies for lualatex with japanese,
and xelatex with chinese (and japanese or korean) differ, but in
'ABOUT' the only uses of non-english text are for showing Article 1
of the UDHR.  For that I only need to set the desired font for
those things which are not covered by the main font.

For my test with vertical japanese text in lualatex I do use

Thanks anyway.

    That just goes to show that you never know, although what
    it is we never know I suspect we'll never know. -- Snuff
