Changing the Japanese Font used (2 posts)

    I really need help with this issue and I have spent hours online looking for a solution.

    Basically, I run a website in English and Japanese. I use qtranslate for the double language options which seems to work ok. However, I want my website to display the Japanese in a much prettier / nicer looking font than it does at the moment.....how can I possibly do this? I have a font in mind, it's called Meiryo and is so much nicer looking than how my and most sites in Japanese are displayed.

    Is this an issue with how browsers choose to display fonts so I can't succeed with what I'm tring to do?
    Is it something I have to change in qtranslate or in the theme??

    Sorry, I'm really lost with this one so any help to put me in the right direction would be great.

    BTW, The site im working with is http://www.nagoya-info.com

  2. Hi robkhoo!
    You will need to edit the theme stylesheet to change the fonts used.

    You can check this page to find out commonly installed Japanese fonts.
