How can a font have a default language?
It's badly worded. I guess it comes from what I found in the older
v1.001 recipe, where it explains why the fonts were packaged this way,
The CJK fonts are distributed in various ways, see the CJK FAQ at
There are multilingual OTFs using the OpenType 'locl' feature, it
says, "In each of these font files there is a single default language
which is used when the 'locl' feature isn't
Since Haiku AFAIK doesn't support that, the bottom line is: Each of
the four CJK fonts contain all glyphs for jp,kr,sc, tc but are in
those four separate packages in order to appear correctly titled in

Sorry for any confusion.
