It really is a pain to need to hand-code Japanese font-family specifications into each landing page and email. In Japanese I think it is fair to say that font designations are either "Serif" or "Sans Serif" due to the complexity and long history of Japanese fonts and their lack of compatibility as pre-installed fonts between platforms. I am pretty sure that most people would be sufficiently satisfied if we could simply have a Serif (Mincho) or Sans Serif (Gothic) font selection. For example, a good Sans Serif specification would be:
font-family: "Hiragino Kaku Gothic ProN", Meiryo, sans-serif;
which guarantees a clean font in both Windows and Mac. But simply specifying "sans-serif" doesn't return as clean of a result, meaning that the current "Arial" selection doesn't quite cut it. Now that Marketo has Japanese language support and a Japanese subsidiary, "Maybe One Day" should probably be today. 🙂
I agree there should me more Japanese fonts.
I am helping out implementations in Japan and many users are asking where are the Japanese fonts...
There should be at least several of the most used fonts in Japan in Marketo .
and yes Meiryo is nice to have.
It should also be possible to remove fonts, so that user have to use the ones set in the template.
