Hi folks, I've been trying to make japanese fonts visible in cmd.exe on Windows XP SP3, but to no avail. I followed the advices expressed here but had no luck finding an adecuate monospace FF_modern japanese font. http://groups.google.com/group/microsoft.public.win32.programmer.international/browse_thread/thread/a902ffaffef5949a So if any of you have solved this before, or have searched and found any answer, please let me know, because I've searched like mad but found nothing over Lycos.com Google.com , Microsoft Technet, etc.

Necessary criteria for fonts to be available in a command window - although the newsgroup exchange in the url that you dropped references this kb article, the comment there doesn't do the article justice.

I dunno.
One thing I noticed was that when I tried to type Kana/Kanji in the command prompt, IME didn't have this as an option. So I think even if you can get a CJK font like MS Song or MS Gothic, setup for command prompt, IME isn't going to let you enter the chars.

You could still copy from another source and paste the text (definitely cumbersome).

What I am really trying to do is use Python Ctypes to print a ctypes.c_wchar_p (C's wide character pointer) valued variable, but I am probably better off defining the encoding in the source editor(and no longer using immediate mode).
