Thread Title:LuaTeX-ja's Support for Chinese?
Subject:[#59165] RE: LuaTeX-ja's Support for Chinese?By:ZR (zrbabbler)
First of all, I'm afraid to say while LuaTeX-ja is planned
to support LaTeX, the implementation is still totally lacking;
You must stick to plain TeX to use this package.

It will be difficult for us to provide full-fledged support
for the Chinese language because of the lack of knowledge
on typesetting in that language, unless we could somewhat
get some help from those who have the knowledge.
However, I think line-formatting rules of Chinese and
Japanese are so alike that you can achieve quite good
result by appropriately adjusting the parameters provided
by the LuaTeX-ja package.
This is a test document (excerpts from the xeCJK manual)
which is typeset in a line-formatting rule (described
in the JFM file jfm-quanjiao.lua) which tries to emulate
the default "punctuation style" in xeCJK, namely "quanjiao".
The source tarball is here:
Note that there is no support for document layout in any
specific languages (even Japanese), which concept I think
is in the realm of LaTeX....
