Unicode 2.1 contains what it calls the "Hangzhou numerals" in the range
U+3021 -- U+3029 (with three more added in Unicode 3.0).
I'm wondering if someone could explain what the "Hangzhou numerals" actually
are/were: what is their origin?
When/how were/are they used? About all I know is that Hangzhao is the
capital of Zhejiang province.
I looked in Daniels' and Bright's "The World's Writing Systems" but didn't
see these characters in the chapters on Chinese or numerals.
Thanks in advance,
