Fonts for all languages

I'm one of those people ... I just set out to install support for Chinese, Kanji and Hangul then I checked all was well on the Wikipedia page and I noticed other unsupported languages. Khmer, Tibetan, Kannada, Myanmar, even Gothic!

I just had to fix all these, here's how:

Chinese, Kanji: ttf-arphic-ukai, ttf-sazanami-gothic
Korean: ttf-unfonts-extra
For the other Asian languages just search in Package Manager for:
khmer, tibetan, kannada, myanmar
...there should be only one obvious choice for each.

Then for Gothic ... damase

Now there's only one language on Wikipedia not rendering but I'm done. (If I plan a trip to south-west China I'll revisit.)

Re: Fonts for all languages

Ah, now I'm ok for south-west China. The package language-support-fonts-ii installed ttf-sil-yi.
