Package: ttf-vlgothic
Version: 20080624-1
Severity: normal

This way you can see, how poorly this font performs, when it is used
for reading jinmeiyou kanjis:

You must have some locale that uses UTF-8 and everything else must be
UTF-8-clean. Give this command:

uxterm -fa 'VL Gothic' -fs 12 &

Then give this command in that (u)xterm:

w3m 'http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jinmeiy%C5%8D_kanji'

When you scroll down, you will see some boxes instead of real kanjis.
Here is the list of them:

巢 U+5DE2
晚 U+665A
曆 U+66C6
歷 U+6B77
每 U+6BCF
淚 U+6DDA
渴 U+6E34
狀 U+72C0
簞 U+7C1E
緣 U+7DE3
虛 U+865B
蟬 U+87EC
谒 U+8C12
鍊 U+934A
