Unless, of course, you are using LaTeX. See CJK-LaTeX and MonTex (Mongolian and Manchu)--although my vertical (and horizonal, for that matter) font is languishing because I still have not figured out metafont. For all of Knuth's genius, why couldn't he have come up with a nice way to create fonts? :Peter
