First, the unfortunate truth is that Qt doesn't find all fonts.  E.G. I have 
Helvetica Narrow (Type1) and it simply ignores it.

I presume that these are CJK fonts.

What are the font names, are they Type1 or TrueType, and what encoding are you 

And specifically, are the font names in Latin (ISO-8859-1) or another encoding?
