Does anyone know of a free Traditional Chinese kaishu-style font that looks like it was written with a ballpoint pen or pencil (not a calligraphic pen or brush)? I'm currently using HanWangFangSongMedium from this page, which I quite like, but it's in fangsong style. It's for my computer flashcards when trying to remember how to write characters (e.g English word -> Chinese character). [more inside]

I would normally use Times but I'm worried it's too cramped—it's really quite squeezed in there compared to other fonts. Is there a better one with a little more space? I feel like it should be common enough to be found on most machines, as I think the application will go in both electronically and on paper.
