traditional and simplified chinese character set?

hey all - was just looking for some open source fonts to use to embed in epubs. found some good cyrillic, vietnamese, greek, arabic, and a couple others on google fonts and SIL, but can't seem to find any useable chinese sets.

anyone have suggestions? is there even support if i were to embed these into anything but for iOS?

thanks!

The CJK wikipedia page has an extensive list of free CJK fonts (marked with an [F]), many of which are also included with Linux distros.

IIRC, ADE generally supports CJK fonts, but no Ruby characters.

Hi,

The "droid sans fallback" is the chinese font from google.
https://github.com/android/platform_...nsFallback.ttf

It seems to be quite good.
