Actually, I should rephrase this: in fact, in Chinese, Japanese and
Korean, there is great potential for improvement regarding body type,
because in those writing systems, the screen resolution issue is still a
problem due to the complexity and density of the character shapes. So
compelling typeface design solutions that involve stroke reduction and
other innovative choices can actually make a big difference when it
comes to readability of web pages set in those languages.
