The file contains
the necessary information. Do not use the version on the CD, which
is incomplete. Lines containing "kSimplifiedVariant" in the 2nd
field represent mappings from the traditional Unicode in the 1st
field to the simplified Unicode in the 3rd field.

The file warns that this mapping "ha[s] not been as extensively proofed
and [its] values should be taken as provisional."
