Thanks all, yes Joel, true that one size for all doesn't always work, 
given the Han unification... just me being lazy I guess, but my use of 
hanzi/kanji/hanja would be limited as a TeX user (some Korean fonts, btw, 
include hangul, kanji & kana, which all do not look bad). I'll try the 
fonts suggested by Peter.

But more important for me is IPA. Igarashi-san, you say M+ works for IPA, 
but I've been using a combined font fetched from somewhere called M+IPAG 
or something (fyi: confusingly here IPA being a Japanese font name) and 
so far without success with XeTeX for IPA, though other western fonts 
work well (like, Deja-Vu). I think there are many ways I can get it 
wrong, but if you think of some typical one do let me know...
