CJK Unified Ideographs Extension C
Richard Cook - University of California, Berkeley
Statement of Purpose:
This presentation is concerned with introducing the audience to the issues surrounding IRG work on "CJK Unified Ideographs Extension C" (Ext C).
The Ideographic Rapporteur Group (ISO/IEC JTC1/SC2/WG2/ IRG) is currently engaged in evaluating the glyph repertoires submitted by IRG members for inclusion in Ext C1.
At the moment of writing (from IRG19 in Macau), a total of 26079 glyphs have been submitted for inclusion in Ext C1.
The breakdown of submissions per member is as follows (sorted by descending number of submissions):
TCA 10659 (Taiwan, ROC)
China 07650 (Mainland PRC)
ROK 04073 (South Korea)
UTC 00271 (Unicode/US)
DPRK 00094 (North Korea)
HK 00029 (Hong Kong)
In this presentation the IRG methodology constraining glyph submissions for Ext C1 (the 26077 glyphs totalled above) will be introduced, along with the plans for Ext C2 submissions (pending).
This paper looks at the IRG member submissions for Ext C1, introducing some of the submitted glyphs, the print sources for the glyph submissions, and the impact of submitted glyphs on the "Han Variant" problem. Finally, this paper will discuss IRG member plans for Ext C2 glyph submissions.
