Hi Craig,
I got jdvi2kps4.0.tar.gz from IIJ by a-ftp. And I read README.
This package required for the real or clone Kanji PS printer.

Are there two printers, HP 4ML in your room and HP 4V in your 

If you want to get Japanese PS output in your room,
the HP LaserJet 4ML should be improved to the Kanji PS one.
Please call HP Service. They'll be have some menu.
I don't know some free kanji PS fonts, sorry.

Hopefully, you'll get a Japnese PS output on HP 4V by jdvi2kps4.0.
Please get the jdvi2kps4.0 package.

I am using jlinuxdoc-sgml 1.1 package.
This package has very powerfull tools convert from sgml to roff, 
latex, html, text, dvi and ps formated file.
But I don't tested yet to convert from sgml to ps file :-).

I opened the new XFree86 3.1.2 docs formated to html by 
jlinuxdoc-sgml 1.1 package(+ a little tweak by me) at below URL.
By now, JF Project has in sgml, text, and html formated file.
These docs will distribute in next XFree86 package from XFree86 
Project, Inc. .
