Bingo, so how did you do that?  All my japanese Kanji I get from web pages 
and I can cut and paste the text into photoshop and it work fine.  How's 
the best way for me to get these charaters into a form I can use like 

I thought that saving them in notepad as unicode, then opening that in a 
hex editor and using the values was the way forward but obviously not :(

Thanks for all your help
