Bug Description

The default fontconfig.properties is not working properly for Japanese. There are several issues,

- chinese fonts are being used in Japanese locale because of this line

sequence.allfonts.UTF-8=latin-1,chinese-gb18030

this should be prepared per language. For Japanese case, it should be

sequence.allfonts.UTF-8.ja=latin-1,japanese-x0208

(See my comment in Korean font issue - https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/sun-java6/+bug/113494)

- default font is defined as "sazanami-gothic" and "sazanami-mincho", but these are not default fonts in Japanese desktop
These should be changed to ipamona fonts like

filename.-ipamona-uigothic-medium-r-normal--*-%d-*-*-c-*-jisx0208.1983-0=/usr/share/fonts/truetype/ipamona/ipagui-mona.ttf
filename.-ipamona-mincho-medium-r-normal--*-%d-*-*-c-*-jisx0208.1983-0=/usr/share/fonts/truetype/ipamona/ipamp-mona.ttf
awtfontpath.japanese-x0208=/usr/share/fonts/truetype/ipamona/

I will attach the diffs later.
