Summary     : WenQuanYi Bitmap Chinese Fonts
Description :
The Wen Quan Yi bitmap font is a manually fine-tuned
multi-strike bitmap font for on-screen display of Chinese
(traditional and simplified). It has arguably the most complete
coverage for Chinese characters among all known open-source
fonts, including CJK Unified Ideograph (U4E00 - U9FA5) and
CJK Unified Ideograph Extension A (U3400 - U4DB5) glyphs
at four different sizes (9pt-12X12 pixel, 10pt-13X13 pixel,
11pt-15X15 pixel, 12pt-16x16 pixel) and two weights
(medium and bold). Use this font in web pages and elsewhere
eliminates the annoying "blurring" problems caused by
the high stroke density of many Chinese characters and
insufficient "hinting" of anti-aliased Chinese fonts.
This font also provides bitmap glyphs for Basic Latin,
Japanese Hiragana (U3040 - U309F) and Katakana (U30A0 - U30FF).

Update Information:

updated "DejaVu LGC Sans Mono" to "DejaVu Sans Mono" in the  default fontconfig
file 61-wqy-bitmapsong.conf, as DejaVu LGC is  not the default Latin fonts in F9
