UniHan Variation: Issues and Solutions
Richard Cook - University of California, Berkeley
Statement of Purpose:
This presentation is concerned with introducing the audience to the issues relating to solutions to the Han variant problem (CJKV Unified Ideographs).
The UCS now encodes a large number of variant CJKV character forms of various types, some of which have relative mappings, many of which do not. On the basis of IRG member submissions for Extension C1, a very large number of additional encoded variants seem imminent.
This presentation introduces the audience to the kinds of variation encountered in the encoded CJKV character set, and to proposed methods for coping with this variation in software implementations.
In particular, the discussion will have the following three parts:
This illustrated talk will conclude with demonstration of proprietary software implementing a stroke-based FreeType font for Unicode 3.2 UniHan.
