# [Cjk] CJK and T1 yield ugly western characters

Dear Werner, dear list,

this information proved very valuable.
I added 'times' to the \documentclass options, resulting in beautiful
pdf output (I give the tex code further down).

Running 'pdffonts CJKutf8-ex2gut.pdf' now yields the following:

name                                 type         emb sub uni object ID
------------------------------------ ------------ --- --- --- ---------
RPARAR+CMBX12                        Type 1C      yes yes yes      4  0
AdobeSongStd-Light-Identity-H  CID Type 0   no  no  no       6  0
DNNUGE+CMR12                         Type 1C      yes yes yes      7  0

The code:

\documentclass[12pt,a4paper,times]{article}
\usepackage{CJKutf8}
\begin{document}
\begin{CJK}{UTF8}{song}

\paragraph{在这里可以些中文马？}

mañana.

\end{CJK}
\end{document}

All the best,

Guba
