To run on a windows machine where installing the Asian Language Fonts
extension is not allowed (because it breaks a software package that is
essential for the project). More generally being able to ensure the

But I sorted out the external swf loading problems I was having so we're
using the fonts.swf made by the designer using the Flash IDE now. So for
my personal needs it is not urgent.
