Yeees ?! Ufff...

Okay. Seems that I tested somewhat to hasty.

Even if I already started to implement an language script into my LaTeX 
export, it would be too fantastic if your CJK Package would work for my 

So I tested again... and hurray !!!

In my first tries the \pdfbookmark has worked only before a \begin{CJK} 
environment but not within or after.
Using the "CJKbookmarks" option for hyperref:


made the \pdfbookmarks usable anywhere but made the bookmark completely 
unreadable too :-(

In Google I found an article about the CJK option "encapsulated" with 
which it's working now .... Yipiii !

Hope I don't get the "save size" problem as indicated in your 
documentation (the final PDF will have about 300 pages and 250MB in size).

Is this the right way to handle the bookmarks ?

BTW: The ttf font problem has been a easy writing/naming mistake of one 
of my tfm files and is solved too !
But, even if the quality of the Truetype fonts is much better than the 
Type3 ones, I'm in doubt if the Printing Office will demand type1 
embedded ones.

I already took a more detailed look to the docs this time, but seems 
that I'm not familiar enough with the TeX internals... too much words I 
didn't understand :-/

Is it possible to embed type1 fonts instead of the truetypes ones ?

I also need to convert another one from one of the "Corporate Identity" 
list. Can I do the same conversion with on of them (if they contain the 
glyphs) as I made with the Cyberbit font ?

Lot lot thanks till now !
The current way with your CJK package is much better than the ugly 
language switching with one of the other packages.
I immediately start to implement this new way as well as test the last 
issues with texindy indexing and some other document specific issues.

In pleasant anticipation


BTW: Here's my current test document
