Well, I installed sun-jre14(pkgsrc/lang/sun-jre14) and jgloss(pkgsrc/wip/jgloss) to
check if jgloss works or not. The result is that _jgloss works without any problems._

When you import text files written in japanese, why don't you set like this?

File -> import -> File -> character encoding of file:<EUC-JP> 

Once you set it to EUC-JP, you can view next japanese file correctly even if character 
encoding of file is set to <auto>.

And this is another topic. If you want to use MS fonts with sun-jre14, the following 
site will be your friend.
