The Sazanami-Mincho-Regular-*.fnt includes 7128 characters.
However, there are about 7500 character not included in the Sazanami-Mincho-Regular-*.fnt though it is included in the sazanami-mincho.ttf font (This font is a font that became an origin when the Sazanami-Mincho-Regular-*.bdf font is made).

Please look at "List.txt" file about the character not included in the Sazanami-Mincho-Regular-*.fnt.

The cause of this problem is in "fontForge"(
used when the bdf file is made from the ttf file.

When the bdf file was made by using "Otf2bdf"( instead of "fontForge", all characters included in the ttf file were able to be taken out.

However, when you make the Sazanami-Mincho-Regular-*.fnt by using Sazanami-mincho-Regular-*.bdf that applies the patch,
The interval between the line and the line opens from present Sazanami-Mincho-Regular-*.fnt a little.

Please report by using new Sazanami-Mincho-Regular-*.fnt(in

I update patch files.

- delete non bitmap characters. (about 1300 characters deletes)
- I added them to all fonts because there was a character that existed only in the specific size font.

Is anything preventing this from being accepted/closed?

"The interval between the line and the line opens from present Sazanami-Mincho-Regular-*.fnt a little."

I don't understand what you mean by this? Can you clarify?

Can you give a summary of what exactly is changed. As simple as possible.
