Could someone help me out with the following fonts?
Adobe 仿宋 Std R [Fangsong]
Adobe 黑体 Std R
Adobe 楷体 Std R [Script]
Adobe 宋体 Std L
Just a brief description/confirmation of the what kind it is (i.e., bold, condensed) or any helpful corollaries between these and other fonts I might recognize (i.e. this is the TNR equivalent), and any helpful usage info/tips.
So far, what (I think) I've figured out is in brackets, plus I'm guessing R=Regular and L=Light. Just for reference I've attached text samples with each text.
[Background] I'm designing an ad for a free Chinese magazine here in LA called "World Weekly" for my company. The problem is, I can't read Chinese at all, although I can figure out some things through my knowledge of Japanese. Probably, no one (that pays me) will care if I use the right fonts. But I've seen shoddy cross-cultural marketing, and one of the things that blares "WE DON'T SPEAK YOUR LANGUAGE" is the odd choice/misuse of fonts. So, I would like to avoid that, and any help would be appreciated! Unfortunately, I don't have the scads of time to do the research - just hopefully get some quick advice or any resources that might help. Thanks!
